FedEx distribution facility delivering 500 jobs to Mesquite

DALLAS — FedEx Ground is opening a distribution facility on the former Big Town Mall site in Mesquite. It is expected to create 500 jobs.

Scott Rohrman, the developer behind Dallas-based 42 Real Estate, has started moving dirt on the site for a 334,000-square-foot distribution facility for FedEx Ground, which is a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), at the former mall site along Interstate 30 in Mesquite.
