Groupon plans to house order fulfillment and inventory storage at a warehouse on Aviation Boulevard in Hebron, near the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport.

 

A spokesman for the Chicago-based daily deal website told the Cincinnati Enquirer that the 123,000 square foot warehouse could be operational by the end of this year. Groupon’s $12 million investment will initially provide 50 jobs. Employment could increase to 100 in the next year.

 

The state approved a $600,000 tax incentive over 10 years for Groupon in July, the newspaper reported.
