HAZELWOOD, Mo. - Amazon facilities are officially in Missouri. On Friday, the company announced it had signed a lease to move into two buildings in Hazelwood.

One of the new buildings in the Hazelwood Logistics Center is over 300,000 square-feet, which the company plans to use as a sorting center.

Amazon also leased part of a second building, where they plan to use 100,000 square-feet for a delivery station.

Hazelwood City Manager Matthew Zimmerman said Amazon plans to hire about 35 full-time employees and over 300 part time employees, and those jobs could start soon because the company plans to have operations up and running by October 1.
