Amazon Opening Eighth Warehouse in Texas

Amazon will open its eighth warehouse in Texas in Coppell, a Dallas suburb. It's the second Amazon warehouse in Coppell; the million-square-foot facility will pick, pack and ship larger customer items, such as big-screen televisions, kayaks and patio furniture. In Texas, the company operates five warehouses and is constructing two, in San Marcos and Houston.

Coppell Mayor Karen Hunt said that the city is "thrilled that Amazon has decided to build a second fulfillment center in Coppell. Adding hundreds of new, full-time jobs to the more than 1,000 they already provide is a demonstration of their commitment to the city. Not only has their presence been a significant economic driver for our community, they have been a consistent and reliable community partner. The city and I are looking forward to our continued relationship with Amazon as we continue to grow together."
