Amazon plans to bring a second fulfillment center – and 1,000 additional jobs – to Northeast Ohio, replacing another dead shopping mall with an e-commerce hub.
The Seattle-based company finalized a lease Wednesday on a planned 650,000-square-foot building in Euclid, on the site of the empty Euclid Square Mall. The deal coalesced barely a month after Amazon committed to its first such local project, an even larger facility set to open next year in North Randall, where Randall Park Mall once stood.
In both North Randall and Euclid, workers will gather small items such as books, electronics, games and toys, pack them into boxes and ship them off. Schematics for the buildings show raised storage platforms where robots will ferry items to and from shelves. The jobs will be full-time positions, with immediate access to health care and retirement benefits and, later on, educational opportunities largely paid for by the company.
