Walmart on Wednesday announced plans to build a $135 million distribution center in Mobile, a move projected to create 550 full-time jobs.

Construction on the 2.5 million-square-foot distribution facility is expected to take 14 months. Once finished, the facility will support roughly 800 Walmart locations.
