COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An online retailer is opening a call center in central Ohio and bringing about 900 new jobs.

Seattle-based Zulily - offering daily deals for women, children and infants - will have a temporary office in suburban Columbus while it looks for a permanent facility. The hiring will be done over the next three years.

Details about the call center were disclosed Monday when the Ohio Tax Credit Authority approved a 75 percent, 12-year income-tax credit for the company.

The tax credit will save the company about $6.2 million. It's contingent on Zulily meeting annual targets for hiring in the first three years toward a total of 900 full-time jobs, and then maintaining a presence in the region for at least 15 years.
