Read Time:1 Minute, 12 Second

A major economic breakthrough for Oklahoma City was announced by Governor Kevin Stitt today. It was disclosed that Sam’s Club, a part of Walmart Inc., plans to build a multipurpose distribution center in the region. The 300,000-square-foot building will open in early 2024 and is located in the OKC Logistics Park at the intersection of SW 29th and Council. By strategically expanding and implementing cutting-edge automation, Sam’s Club hopes to improve customer experience and strengthen its supply chain capabilities with an estimated capital investment of about $40 million.

Governor Stitt emphasized the long-standing relationship between Sam’s Club and the state of Oklahoma while expressing excitement for the project. He emphasized that the region has benefited much economically from the establishment of 130 long-term jobs.

Governor Stitt’s remarks were mirrored by Sam’s Club Chief Supply Chain Officer Joseph Godsey, who emphasized the company’s dedication to modernizing its supply chain and enhancing member access to products.

Local leaders, such as Mayor David Holt of Oklahoma City, applauded the investment and highlighted its benefit to the expanding southwest Oklahoma City distribution corridor. Mayor Holt highlighted the city’s continued expansion and stated that he was excited to work with Walmart and Sam’s Club even more as they grow.

This announcement is significant for Oklahoma City’s economy because Walmart, which already employs over 35,000 people in the state across a variety of industries, is the state’s largest employer.
