Amazon.com to Open Baltimore Fulfillment Center

BALTIMORE, Md. (AP) - Amazon.com says it will open a 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center in Baltimore, bringing more than 1,000 full-time jobs.

The online retailer said Tuesday that Amazon employees will pick, pack and ship books, electronics and consumer goods at the facility. WBAL-AM reports that the center will be on the site of the former General Motors Assembly plant along Broening Highway in Southeast Baltimore.

Gov. Martin O'Malley said the facility is joining the area surrounding the Port of Baltimore. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said center presents a unique industrial development opportunity.
