Amazon adding Indiana center

March 28th, 2012 by Staff Report in Business Around the Region

Amazon.com Inc. announced plans Tuesday for a $150 million warehouse and distribution center in southern Indiana after state officials gave the online retailer two more years before it has to start collecting sales taxes from customers.

Seattle-based Amazon said the center in Jeffersonville is expected to open this fall and could have some 1,000 employees by 2015. The new center is similar to those Amazon opened last year in Chattanooga and Charleston, Tenn., and three others planned in Tennessee.
