EDGERTON, Kan. (AP) - Amazon.com says it plans to open a 1,000-job fulfillment center in the Kansas City suburb of Edgerton, Kansas.

Amazon announced Thursday that the hourly, full-time employees at the planned 800,000-square-foot center will pick, pack and ship large items to customers.

Amazon already has operations in nearby Lenexa.

Gov. Sam Brownback called the project “good news for Kansas.”

It was not immediately clear how soon the Edgerton center would open.
