Nasty Gal, An Online Fashion Distributor, Invests $18 Million On An Kentucky Distribution Center
"Nasty Gal is thrilled and honored to make Shepherdsville the home of our state-of-the-art new fulfillment center," says Deborah Benton, Nasty Gal's COO. "We chose Shepherdsville not just for its central location, but also for its people and culture. We look forward to bringing our core values of respect, fun, and a strong focus on customer service, along with hundreds of jobs, to this strong, hard-working community."
"A young entrepreneur combined hard work with a winning concept to create what is now a multi-million-dollar, international company," Gov. Steve Beshear said. "The Commonwealth welcomes this company to Kentucky with the creation of 300 jobs." The company plans to begin operations at its new Shepherdsville facility, located at 700 Omega Parkway, late this summer.
"Because of announcements like this, Bullitt County has become what I think is the nation's best destination for companies that want to expand their distribution centers and boost their online presence," said Rep. Linda Belcher, of Shepherdsville. "I want to thank Nasty Gal for making such a major investment and providing our community with so many needed jobs. I'm also pleased the Commonwealth could play a role in helping to make this possible."
As an incentive to encourage the investment and job creation in Shepherdsville, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved Nasty Gal for tax incentives up to $3 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.
