Online retailer Amazon plans to open a new fulfillment centre in Monee, Illinois, which will be a more than 850,000 square foot facility. This will bring the number of fulfillment centres in the state to four. At the Monee fulfillment centre, Amazon employees will pick, pack and ship small items like books, electronics and consumer goods for customers.

“We place our fulfillment centers close to customers to provide the fastest possible delivery times, and the growth in Illinois is directly tied to our increasing customer demand,” said Akash Chauhan, vice president of Amazon's North America Operations.

“It's very exciting to think that Amazon could soon be employing thousands and thousands of full-time employees in the area. We look forward to the Monee site opening,” Will County executive Lawrence Walsh said. (AR)
