Walmart Opened a Fulfillment Center in Pennsylvania

Walmart opened a new 1.5 million-square-foot fulfillment center at 1915 Ebberts Spring Court in Greencastle, 10 miles north of Hagerstown. This next-generation facility will enable the retailer to fulfill more orders more quickly.

“We’re proud to create even more opportunities for associates to build a career at Walmart. Associates at the Greencastle facility will work with cutting edge technology and play a pivotal role in increasing shipping speeds for our customers”

“This is an exciting day for Greencastle, and we are thrilled to be the new home of Walmart’s newest state-of-the-art fulfillment center,” said Antrim Township Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman, Patrick Heraty. “This facility will be a great benefit to the residents in our county and the greater south-central Pennsylvania region.”

Increased Order Capacity, Faster Shipping Speeds

The Greencastle fulfillment center is Walmart’s fourth next-generation facility. A fifth facility, which will open in 2026, was recently announced. These facilities combine people, technology, and machine learning to achieve faster shipping and delivery while increasing the retailer’s online order fulfillment capacity.

The facility will expand access to the retailer’s next- or two-day shipping. Combined with the rest of Walmart’s fulfillment network, these next-generation fulfillment centers will enable the retailer to reach 95% of the U.S. population with the service. Walmart Fulfillment Services, Walmart’s end-to-end third-party fulfillment service, will also leverage the space to fulfill Marketplace items.

“Walmart is paving the way for good jobs and great careers in the south-central Pennsylvania region with the Greencastle fulfillment center. These tech-powered jobs will drive the future of Walmart’s continued promise of speedy shipping and delivery for customers on the east coast,” said Karisa Sprague, senior vice president, Fulfillment Network Operations for Walmart U.S. “Our next generation fulfillment centers are the perfect example of how we are a people-led, tech-powered retailer.”

Career Opportunities

Additional benefits of this game-changing technology include new career pathways – and job comfort – for associates. The Greencastle fulfillment center will be home to more than 1,000 Walmart associates. The retailer is currently hiring for various positions, including tech-focused jobs. Each job brings with it a pathway for opportunity at Walmart.

Full-time positions qualify for Walmart’s total rewards and benefits plans, which include medical, vision, and dental insurance, 401(k) matching, paid time off, a stock purchase plan, and access to a tuition-paid college degree through Walmart’s Live Better U.
