Amazon's physical expansion continues to heat up, with the e-tailer giant announcing two more planned fulfillment centers over the past week. The company will be adding a facility in North Haven, CT, and another in Thornton, CO.
Announced June 8, the North Haven fulfillment center — located in the south-central part of Connecticut — will create more than 1,500 full-time jobs and will occupy 855,000-square feet. Amazon currently has Connecticut facilities in Wallingford and Windsor.
