Amazon.com now confirms plans to build a 500,000 square-foot distribution center in Lebanon. The company estimates it will create “hundreds” of full-time and seasonal jobs as soon as this year.
This would be Amazon’s third facility in Tennessee, with two being built near Chattanooga. The online retailer has already begun recruiting for jobs in the state, including warehouse positions and management roles.
State lawmakers are still debating whether companies like Amazon should be forced to collect Tennessee sales tax now that it will have a physical presence here.
