The facility is expected to be completed and occupied no later than December of 2016, according to an agreement between the retailer and Cornwall’s Economic Development agency, announced late last week. The new site will be built on a 121-acre parcel acquired by Loblaw through a subsidiary.

The facility will join a business park where Wal-Mart Stores and Target each operate 1.4 million-square-foot distribution centers. Shoppers Drug Mart, now a division of Loblaw, operates a 600,000-square-foot facility there.
