Amazon is opening same-day delivery center in North Myrtle Beach, to provide 100 jobs

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina – Amazon is setting up a new same-day-delivery center in North Myrtle Beach, a project expected to be completed and fully operational this year. The company is going to use a large, new building that’s 165,000 square feet located on Water Tower Road. This information was confirmed by officials from both Horry County and North Myrtle Beach. This new center is special because it’s the first of its kind for Amazon in South Carolina. It aims to make it quicker to get orders to customers by handling everything from one place, as mentioned in the press release.

“South Carolina is a great place to live and work, and we’re excited to be growing our operations footprint in Myrtle Beach,” said Amazon Manager of Economic Development Sam Blatt. “Same-Day Delivery facilities are finely curated to the areas and customers they serve, so product selection varies by city. It’s also one of our fastest ways to serve our customers, which improves the overall shopping experience. We appreciate the support of our great partners, including the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation, Horry County, and the City of North Myrtle Beach, and we look forward to sharing more details about this facility in the future.”

According to the Amazon website, the company provides same-day delivery to over 110 metropolitan areas. For Amazon Prime members in most of these areas, this service is free when they spend more than $25. Those who aren’t Prime members can still use the service for a certain fee.

Sandy Davis, the president of the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corp. (EDC) – the group in charge of attracting businesses to the county, mentioned that customers living within an hour’s drive from the North Myrtle Beach center might get their items, including food, within five hours after ordering.

Davis also mentioned that the Amazon center is expected to offer more than 100 jobs and lead to an investment of $14.5 million in the next five years. She noted that Amazon aims to open the center by the year’s end. Applying for a job will become available later this year.
