GARNER, N.C. — Scores of public officials and members of the media got a sneak peek inside Amazon’s new fulfillment center in Garner Tuesday, with Amazon officials showcasing millions of square feet soon to be home to thousands of robots and 1,500 workers.

The massive new facility just off Interstate 40 is set to open ahead of the 2020 holiday season. 

The $200-million facility was announced in 2018 and features 2.6 million square feet across four stories. Once opened, thousands of robots will rush across acres of concrete, bringing ordered goods to Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) associates who will pick out the right items for shipping.
