The additional South Jersey Amazon facilities are slated for Delran (on the 400 block of Delran Parkway) and Bordentown (2400 block of Old York Road).

Not only will faithful Amazon shoppers be happy about the new delivery stations, but the community is likely to benefit as well. A representative for Amazon says the stations will create job openings for employees and independent contractors, according to Courier Post.

And, I guess this means Burlington Co. residents will see even more Amazon trucks driving up and down their streets.
