A project is in the works to bring an Amazon distribution center to Southwest Florida. A construction crew spent last week at the planned Amazon facility
at the corner of Davis and Collier boulevards in unincorporated Collier County. Not only will this location benefit Southwest Florida shoppers, but it will also bring more jobs to the area, WINK News reports
. Last year, the delivery giant opened a location near Treeline Boulevard in Lee County, bringing hundreds of jobs to the area. Shelton Weeks, chairman of FGCU’s Lutgert College of Business, expects something similar to happen in Collier County. “When you look at where we are in terms of the economic situation right now, anything that’s going to bring jobs to the area, it’s going to be a step in the right direction,” Weeks says.
