Discount retailer Big Lots is opening a warehouse and distribution facility in the newly built Bethel Industrial Center in Bethel. 

The building was constructed by J.G. Petrucci Co. Inc. in a joint venture with real estate investment management firm, DWS. The two joined to develop a 587,100-square-foot distribution facility directly off Interstate 78.  

Situated on 45 Acres, the LEED Certified facility features 40-foot clear height, 108 dock doors and LED lighting.  

The facility will help Big Lots accommodate its growing demand in the eCommerce space. 

In need of more space, Big Lots looked to Eastern Pennsylvania for a large industrial solution.  

After issuing a proposal on behalf of the tenant, JLL brokers, Mike McCreary, Larry Maister, Ryan Barros and Matt Powers worked with J.G. Petrucci and JLL Broker Jeff Lockard to locate the appropriate site for Big Lots next home and selected this facility to lease.
