There's big business news brewing in Washington County.

It's mostly speculation right now, but there are reports that Wal-Mart is going to build a major new facility in a field off Highway 75, just east of the town of Ochelata, possibly a distribution center.

It's believed it may create several hundred new jobs. Officials remain tight-lipped.

An announcement is expected Friday afternoon.
