Online retailer Amazon has announced plans to build a new facility that will bring 1,000 full-time jobs to Jackson County.

According to BusinessWire, the company plans to build a fulfillment center in Jefferson and the new jobs will add to the 1,500 jobs at various facilities across the state.

Most of the jobs will include packing and shipping large items like furniture, sports equipment and gardening tool, among several others. The facility is expected to span more than 850,000 square feet.

It is unclear when the facility is expected to open.

A quick check of Amazon's job posting page shows the facility is already advertising for jobs as a lead warehouse associate.
