Amazon Center construction pushed back

Amazon has pushed back the opening of a large distribution facility here in Mississippi.

The company announced plans for a third fulfillment center in Madison County about 15 months ago. The 700,000 square foot facility is expected to bring 1,000 full time jobs to the state.

An Amazon spokesperson said Tuesday the company still plans to open the new facility in Canton, but the timing has changed.

Officials now project that the site will open between July and September.
