Retail giant Amazon is planning to open a new warehouse in Oklahoma City next year.
According to the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, the warehouse is expected to create over 500 full-time jobs.
“We appreciate Amazon’s continued investment in Oklahoma City and look forward to the positive impact their presence will have on future and the overall economy of our great city,” Oklahoma City mayor David Holt said in a statement.
“Amazon’s new facility is another testament to the nation and the world that Oklahoma is open for business,” Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt said in a statement. “As governor, it is my priority to foster a climate where businesses can grow, thrive and expand in order to provide jobs for hardworking Oklahomans to support their families. I salute Amazon on its expansion and look forward to its continued growth in our state.”
A location for the new one million square-foot warehouse has yet to be announced.
