It’s official! A new Amazon distribution center is coming to the town of Garner. The location will be the old ConAgra building off Jones Sausage Road. This will bring an estimated 1,500 jobs and extensive economic growth to the area. Construction has begun and it is supposed to be finished next fall. Watch the press conference, that took place earlier today, below.
There is still no update on where Amazon will pick for its second headquarters, but the Triangle is still in the running. Hopefully the distribution center is only the first Amazon announcement in the coming months!
