Amazon Clears Another Major Hurdle In Possible New Hampshire Move
Mystery surrounds what will happen at the site of the old BJ's Wholesale Club, and many have said it'll be a distribution center for the online giant.
According to WMUR News 9, Amazon took one step closer to moving into the Granite State last night, as the Hooksett planning board voted to approve a plan for a future tenant, with conditions on snow removal, landscaping and signage.
The future tenant couldn't be confirmed with WMUR News 9 by a company representing the tenant, due to a non disclosure agreement.
However, a planning board member reportedly dished that it's Amazon to WMUR.
David Boutin said in the article: “There’s no question it’s Amazon and we’re happy to have them, really happy to have them. They’re going to be serving all of New Hampshire, western Maine and the state of Vermont.”
The facility would be used as distribution for Amazon, similar to Fed Ex, UPS, and etc. Supporters say it's great for the area, as the 24/7 facility would employ more than 400 people, according to WMUR.
