Amazon To Build Two More Distribution Centers In Ohio

Online retailer Amazon says it will open new distribution centers in Akron and Rossford, near Toledo. 

A combined 25 hundred full-time jobs are expected to be created. Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan says the facility in his city will be built on the site of a former shopping mall. 

It's not clear when the facilities will open. Amazon has five other distribution centers in the state. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
