    Amazon will build a e-commerce warehouse and distribution operation in Frederick County, which the online retailer says will bring more than 1,000 new jobs.

    The facility, slated to be in the White Hall Commerce Center, will be one million square feet. 

    The state competed against West Virginia for the project.

    “We are proud that Amazon will grow its presence in Virginia with this major investment and new operation that will bring more than 1,000 job opportunities to Frederick County and the northern Shenandoah Valley,” Gov. Terry McAuliffe said.
