Amazon is opening a fulfillment center in North Randall, Ohio, that will create more than 2,000 full-time associate jobs in the Cleveland area.
The new facility will open on the site of the former Randall Park Mall..
Amazon currently employs more than 4,500 full-time hourly associates at its two existing Ohio fulfillment centers in Etna and Obetz.
Amazon employees at the more than 855,000-square-foot fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship smaller customer items such as electronics, toys and books.
“Words cannot begin to express what Amazon’s commitment to the development of its fulfillment center means for the Village of North Randall,” said Mayor David Smith, in a statement. “This is a generational project that not only redefines the future of our community but the future of more than 2,000 Cuyahoga County residents who will be employed at the facility.”
The project is being developed in partnership with Seefried Industrial Properties.
