ATLANTA (AP) - Gov. Sonny Perdue says General Mills is planning a 1.5 million-square-foot distribution center in Social Circle, where it will invest $42 million and create 112 jobs.

The governor says General Mills will contract with a third-party provider to staff and run the distribution center in Walton County. The facility will distribute General Mills products throughout the Southeast.

Hiring for permanent jobs at the center is planned for early 2010.

The company has a manufacturing plant in Covington.
