FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Amazon officials say the first day of operations at the company’s new warehouse in Fargo will be on Sept. 19.

The 1.3 million square-foot Fargo Fulfillment Center had been under construction for nearly a year.

The building, which is located on 110 acres of land, is believed to be the largest in North Dakota.

KVRR-TV reports that construction costs have been estimated at $100 million to $120 million.

Amazon wants to hire about 1,000 full-time, hourly workers in Fargo with a starting wage of $15 per hour.

The company plans to open a “Last Mile Delivery Station” in West Fargo, which is expected to create about 100 jobs.

The closest Amazon warehouse from Fargo is located in the Twin Cities.
