Amazon is preparing to open new distribution centers in Downers Grove and reportedly in Palatine.
Downers Grove Mayor Robert Barnett confirmed Monday evening that Amazon plans to move into roughly 500,000 square feet of space in two new warehouses in the Bridge Point Downers Grove industrial park along Finley Road north of I-355.
He said the company is expected to hire between 120 and 130 people.
In addition, Cooper’s Hawk Winery will be moving its distribution center into a third warehouse building at the site. The company also is moving its corporate headquarters to a nearby office park.
