Delivery Station Planned
Amazon confirmed earlier today that it has leased the former Kmart at 2712 West Main Street to operate as a Delivery Station opening sometime in 2021.
“The addition of the Amazon Delivery Station to the Waynesboro economy is encouraging for our city and citizens. 2020 has been challenging for our community and many others; this facility provides positive reinforcement that our future is bright,” states Waynesboro Mayor Bobby Henderson, “we welcome Amazon to the community. We appreciate their commitment to our area and the job opportunities for our citizens.”
The Kmart retail store closed in late 2018 as part of a nationwide restructuring. “Transformation of this former retail building into a vital ecommerce facility is important to the city as we rebuild our economy and prepare for the future. We are looking forward to working with the Amazon team to open the station”, says Greg Hitchin, Director of Economic Development and Tourism.
Details about employment opportunities will be announced at a later time.
