Gap To Expand Distribution Center In Dutchess
A global retailer is expanding its distribution center in Dutchess County, adding jobs.
Governor Andrew Cuomo Monday announced that retailer Gap Inc. is expanding its 2.3 million square-foot distribution center in Fishkill and will create up to 1,200 jobs over the next five years. Cuomo says Gap considered other locations across the country for its expansion project, but ultimately chose New York. A Gap official says the retailer will invest $96 million in its Fishkill Distribution Center Campus, and add the up to 1,200 jobs by June of 2019. New York is providing tax credits tied directly to job creation and investment commitments. In addition, the Dutchess County Industrial Development Agency is extending its existing Payment in Lieu of Tax agreement, which will also be performance-based.
