CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - An online retailer has announced plans for a major expansion of its Storey County operation.

Zulilly spokesman Jess Andrew told the state economic development board last week that the company is building a 700,000 square foot warehouse and distribution center at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center east of Reno.

Andrew says the company hopes to add 1,600 employees in Storey County over the next five years. It already has 600 workers in the county.

The Nevada Appeal reports the board headed by Gov. Brian Sandoval approved tax abatements designed to convince Zulilly to expand in Nevada rather than Arizona.

Sandoval expressed concern about the company's average wage of $12.50 an hour.

Andrew says workers can move into higher-paying positions.

Zulilly describes itself as an online "shopping destination for moms."
