Amazon.com, the world’s biggest online retailer, said Tuesday that it has picked a site just outside Trenton, N.J., for a distribution center.
Amazon employees will pick, pack and ship items for customers at the 1-million-square-foot center in Robbinsville, which the company plans to occupy in early 2014.
As part of a deal with the state announced last year, the retailer will be eligible for state economic assistance grants totaling millions of dollars on its investment, which is expected to exceed $200 million.
Amazon.com Inc., in turn, agreed to collect 7 percent sales tax on purchases made in New Jersey starting in July 2013. Officials estimated that would bring the state an estimated $30 million to $40 million a year.
