Later this year, a grocery distribution center will open at the Apex Industrial Park in North Las Vegas. Apex Industrial Park totals 18,000 acres of industrial land off of Interstate 15 at U.S. Highway 93. Currently, 1,000 acres of Apex have been developed with another 1,000 acres in development. The new 885,000 square foot distribution center will be operated by Smith’s. This center plans to add 250 jobs to North Las Vegas and distribute household and fresh grocery items to Smith’s across Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern Utah. According to Bill Arent, chief business development officer for the LVGEA, Southern Nevada’s business-friendly environment, low business costs, and access to 61 million people is proof that this area is ideal for logistics operations to flourish. The exact date of the opening is unknown, but it is said to be sometime later this fall.
