AutoZone will build a new distribution center in Chowchilla, California, the company announced on Dec. 16.

AutoZone expects to begin construction in the summer of 2022 for a projected opening in 2024, according to a news release from the city of Chowchilla.

The distribution center will bring at least 280 jobs to Chowchilla, a community of 19,000 residents that’s about a two-hour drive from San Jose.

“With more than 640 stores across the state of California, we are very excited to be a part of the Chowchilla community,” AutoZone CEO Bill Rhodes said. “During our process to identify our next distribution-center location, Chowchilla’s leadership team has been amazing and has helped solidify our decision to come and be an integral part of this great community. Our significant investment in Chowchilla represents our commitment to always putting our customers first and is an important part of our strategy for accelerated growth.”

The city of Chowchilla is located at the intersection of two major highways. Highway 152 serves as the gateway to the Bay Area, and Highway 99 links together the major cities within the San Joaquin Valley. Chowchilla boasts 2,800 acres of land zoned for industrial and commercial development, ready for building or occupancy, according to the city.  

“We are very excited for this new development and what it means for the city of Chowchilla and the people who live here,” said Mayor John Chavez. “We needed a way to create new jobs for the community, so they do not have to commute outside our city for work, and they can spend more time with their families.”
