QVC Plannng 1.1 Million-Square-Foot West Coast Warehouse In California

Many thanks to the kind tipster who clued us into this: QVC is planning to build a 1.1 million-square-foot warehouse/distribution center on the Left Coast, in Cali.

The news was first reported in the Daily Bulletin, which said that the massive project, which would create 900 jobs, is planned for Ontario. That is Ontario in California, 35 miles east of LA, not Canada.

We were also kindly sent a copy of the agreement that the No. 1 home shopping network has with Ontario.

QVC is getting a sweet financial deal from the city, a sizable sales-tax rebate.

The news comes in the wake of the network recently announcing it was closing its call center in Port St. Lucie, Fla., which will lead to 800 employees losing their jobs.
