PLAINFIELD, Ind. Wal-Mart says it will build a new distribution center in central Indiana and have perhaps 300 employees there in the next couple years.

The company announced Thursday it would build the 1.2 million square-foot facility in a Plainfield industrial park that's near Indianapolis International Airport.

Wal-Mart says the new center will fill online orders after it opens early next year. The company says it expects to start hiring for full-time jobs at the center in October.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says it offered Wal-Mart up to $2.9 million in tax credits and $200,000 in training grants based on the company's hiring plans. Plainfield officials might provide more incentives to the company.
