Online retailing leader Amazon.com is eyeing a pair of mammoth fulfillment centers in Hamilton and Bradley counties, officials said late Monday.
The projects would represent a $164 million investment and create up to 1,400 jobs, state and local officials confirmed.
The Times Free Press first reported the Amazon story on its website Monday evening.
Gov. Phil Bredesen said officials are working diligently with Amazon.com to settle outstanding issues on the proposal to build two 1 million-square-foot centers.
“It is my hope that we can bring these discussions to a successful resolution and create a large number of jobs for the people of Tennessee,” he said.
Officials from Amazon.com declined to comment. from TimesFreePress.com Click here for more
