Gov. Tom Corbett says American Eagle Outfitters Inc. is planning a $160 million-plus distribution center near Hazleton that is projected to generate nearly 400 jobs.

The governor said Tuesday the million-square-foot center on a 120-acre site will also bring construction jobs and additional hiring during peak business seasons.

The center is being supported by state money, including more than $500,000 from the Department of Community and Economic Development.

American Eagle has more than 1,000 stores in North America, as well as outlets in other parts of the globe.
