Amazon builds another center near Chicago
CHICAGO — A month after announcing a new e-commerce fulfillment center in southwest suburban Chicago, Amazon is adding yet another facility in the region. The 850,000-square-foot warehouse under construction in Monee, will be Amazon’s fourth in Will County.
“Hundreds and hundreds” of employees at the warehouse will prepare small items such as books, electronics and consumer goods for shipment, Amazon said Monday. The fulfillment center, built to suit Amazon, is expected to be ready for operation in the second half of 2017.
