There’s nothing like an extremely icy winter to make a person daydream about never having to leave the house. And if Amazon’s new grocery delivery service, AmazonFresh, expands to the Baltimore area, that just might be a possibility.
Remember the news a few months back that Amazon was building a giant distribution center in Southeast Baltimore? Well this week we learned that a second gigantic (346,000 square feet!) warehouse will be built next door. Nothing’s official yet, but Amazon watchers are pretty sure they know where this is going — the timing and location indicate that the gigantic online retailer will probably use this as a base of operations for its first grocery delivery service on the East Coast. (AmazonFresh is already operational in Seattle, LA, and San Francisco.)
The warehouse is expected to add a few hundred jobs to the region, and will probably make your Amazon deliveries even faster. And once Amazon can read your mind and deliver by drone, well then you’ll really never have to leave the house again!
