“The LVGEA and our partners in economic development are proud to announce the expansion of these nine companies - the largest number of projects our organization has ever presented in a single GOED board meeting,” LVGEA Chief Operating Officer Jared Smith said in release. “Nevada’s pro-business climate, ready workforce, and strategic location encourages the growth of these dynamic companies choosing our region and strengthens our economy.”

CVS, a pharmacy chain, projected to add 500 jobs with an average wage of $25.73. Sephora, a cosmetic chain, projected to add 460 jobs with an average wage of $24.05.
