Efforts are underway to market Palm Beach County as a destination for distribution centers and the head of the county's Business Development Board says it's working. 

Kelly Smallridge counts 14 such warehouses in the area, including the newest addition, a food distribution center for the grocery chain Aldi, which opened recently in Royal Palm Beach.  There is also a large Walgreens distribution center west of Jupiter. 

The Palm Beach Post reports jobs at these centers typically pay in the $12 per hour range.
