WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) - An online pet retailer is opening a fulfillment center in northeastern Pennsylvania that will create more than 600 jobs.

Chewy.com says it will occupy an 800,000-square-foot warehouse under construction in Hanover Township, outside Wilkes-Barre.

Company spokeswoman Andrea Wolfe tells The (Wilkes-Barre) Citizens’ Voice (https://bit.ly/2i9k3tY ) that it chose the area in part for its location. Wolfe says the retailer has a growing customer base in the Northeast.

The company has another fulfillment center in central Pennsylania and warehouses in Nevada and Indiana.

The fulfillment center is expected to open in the second quarter of 2017.
