RENO, Nev. (AP) - A sports apparel wholesaler has announced plans for a big distribution center north of Reno that will bring 350 jobs to the area.

Reno Mayor Hillary Scheive announced Tuesday S&S Activewear plans to open the 800,000-square-foot building in the North Valleys in early 2019.

The Reno Gazette Journal reports it will be the largest occupant of a pre-built facility in the history of Nevada.

S&S Activewear President Jim Shannon says the move was motivated by the company’s desire to expand its one- and two-day shipping capabilities along the West Coast. He says Reno is one of the biggest per-capita industrial markets in the country.

He says they expect to pay employees in the range of $12 to $15 per hour.
