Amazon Announces Opening Of Career Center And Delivery Stations In Hampton Roads

HAMPTON-Amazon announced on September 1 its plans to expand its presence in the Hampton Roads area with the opening of a career center as well as two delivery stations, including one on Mercury Boulevard in Hampton in the former Kmart building.

“We would like to thank Amazon for their investment in this state-of-the-art distribution facility,” Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck said in a release. “A generation of Hampton residents did much of their shopping at the former Kmart on this site, and now the redeveloped building will serve a new generation of online shoppers. Amazon is bringing full and part time jobs to our city, as well as bringing our packages a little closer to our doorsteps.”

Amazon is opening a delivery station in a 111,600 square foot facility at 223 W. Mercury Boulevard in Hampton. The other delivery center will be located in a 165,000 square foot building on Sewell Road in Norfolk. The two new centers combined are expected to create hundreds of part-time and full-time associate jobs as well as jobs for drivers for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex Drivers.

The Amazon Career Center, meanwhile, will be located on Military Highway in Chesapeake and will serve as a hiring and orientation hub for Amazon’s operations facilities in Chesapeake, Suffolk, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Hampton.
