South Carolina County Approves Incentive Package For Amazon Warehouse

Posted: Updated:

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- The Spartanburg County Council has unanimously voted to give an incentives package to a new Amazon.com Inc. warehouse in Spartanburg, S.C.

The county will give the Internet retail giant a 6 percent fee-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement for 30 years and widen the street where the company will build its new million-square foot distribution center.

County Councilman David Britt says he expects Amazon to break ground on the new warehouse before the end of the year.

County leaders say the warehouse should bring in about 400 full-time jobs, with more workers during season peaks and an investment of $50 million.

Amazon built its first distribution center in South Carolina in Lexington County earlier this year.
