    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - An online pet supply retailer says it is opening a fulfillment center in North Carolina that will create 1,200 jobs.

    The Charlotte Observer reports Chewy, whose corporate offices are in Florida and in Boston, announced on Wednesday that it will spend $55 million on the new center, which will be in Salisbury in Rowan County. It's not known when the center will open.
