Internet retailer Amazon plans to build a distribution center in West Jefferson.
The firm says the center will create 15 hundred jobs when it opens by the end of next year. It will be Amazon’s third major distribution center in the Columbus area. It's not clear if the company is getting any public subsidies for the project. The announcement comes as the firm considers bids with millions of dollars in tax breaks from Columbus and 19 other cities to build a second headquarters. The winner is expected to be announced later this year.
