Amazon closes 400-job NC warehouse as e-commerce giant sheds space

DURHAM, N.C. — A once-sprawling Amazon delivery station in Durham has closed as the e-commerce giant reevaluates its warehouse space across the country.

Amazon.com Inc. confirmed the recent closure of its ‘last-mile’ delivery station located at 224 N. Hoover Road. The 262,000-square-foot facility opened four years ago and at its peak employed 400 full- and part-time workers.

Amazon did not release any recent numbers, but a company spokesperson said most employees at the site have been moved to other facilities with “upgraded amenities including on-site parking and break rooms with Canteen vending.”
