DINWIDDIE, Va. (AP) - The newly opened distribution center in Virginia for Amazon.com is celebrating the shipping of its first package - a 5-quart Crock-Pot slow cooker sent to a Michigan customer.
The online retailer says the shipment took place late Wednesday at the facility in Dinwiddie County.
The building has 1 million square feet of floor space and ships products ranging from electronics and sports equipment to small kitchen appliances and toys.
Officials say about 250 people will be joining the distribution center over the next several weeks and the company expects to hire more people as the holiday season approaches.
Amazon.com broke ground on the center in December 2011, when the company announced plans to invest $135 million in two facilities in the Richmond area that would employ a total 1,350 people. Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
