Internet Retailer, Amazon, Announces Creation of 3,000 New Jobs in 30-Day Span
In late August, Amazon announced that it would create 2,000 jobs as part of its plan to transform the vacant Randall Park Mall into a fulfillment and distribution center. Fast-forward a month, now the company plans to add another 1,000 jobs as it revitalizes the former Euclid Square Mall site into a 650,000-square-foot fulfillment center.
As Amazon grows its presence in Ohio, its continued investment in Northeast Ohio is a testament to our region’s outstanding workforce and business climate.
“Amazon’s confidence in Greater Cleveland continues,” said Joe Roman, President and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP). “In the last 30 days Amazon has committed to creating 3,000 new jobs, investing more than $350 million of capital and repurposing over 125 acres of ‘dead-mall’ property.”
A local and regional team of the City of Euclid, Cuyahoga County, Greater Cleveland Partnership, JobsOhio, Ohio Department of Transportation, and Team NEO worked together to provide the business case for the highly competitive project, making it a truly regional effort. “The economic development system worked well at all levels to ensure Amazon chose Euclid for this investment,” said Bill Koehler, CEO of Team NEO.
