Amazon plans to open an $85 million distribution center in Kannapolis with at least 600 full-time jobs, city officials said Monday night. The online retail giant intends to open its 1 million-square-foot center in 2019 on Macedonia Church Road, off N.C. 73 and Kannapolis Parkway just east of the Coddle Creek Reservoir. “We are very excited to welcome one of the nation’s largest companies to Kannapolis,” Mayor Darrell Hinnant said in a statement. “Their role as a world leader in commerce continues to evolve, and we look forward to being a part of their innovation in the distribution of goods and services.”
