Could Amazon Build Second Headquarters in South Jersey?Last Edited:
ATLANTIC COUNTY, N.J. --A major online retailer is looking for a new home for its second headquarters and officials from one South Jersey community want to lure them to the East Coast.
Atlantic County officials are making a bid to bring the new Amazon HQ 2 to the Atlantic City area in hopes of boosting the local economy and creating thousands of new jobs for residents.
Officials from Amazon — based Washington State — announced last week that they are looking for a second location to build a corporate headquarters similar to the one outside of Seattle that would bring in 50,000 new full-time jobs.
Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson says the county offers a perfect location for Amazon and thinks they are in the position to be a big contender in the highly-competitive bid.
