Groupon Goods Inc. is searching for warehouse space in Northern Kentucky. The products segment of the daily deals giant is looking to carry out operations from a 100,000-square-foot building in the humble town of Hebron.
On Thursday, the Chicago-based company was approved for $600,000 in tax incentives from the Kentucky Business Incentive program. With hourly wages set at $14, Groupon would employ 115 workers at its Hebron facilities.
A report issued by the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority states that Groupon’s total start-up costs will hit $12 million – $6.6m going towards rent and another $4.5m covering equipment costs.
With items ranging from appliances and accessories to widescreen TVs, Groupon Goods offers steep markdowns on some of the most popular merchandise.
