(Harrisburg) -- Nordstrom plans to build its east coast online fulfillment center in the Conewago Industrial Park in Lancaster County.

The move will create nearly 370 full-time jobs for the region.

In a statement, the fashion retailer calls the midstate the ideal location to expand its e-commerce fulfillment capabilities.

The Governor's Action Team helped lure Nordstrom to West Donegal Township with more than $2.3 million in state grants and loans.

The company plans to invest $79 million in the new fulfillment center, which is scheduled to open in the summer of 2015.
