AMAZON TO CLOSE TWO BALTIMORE-AREA FACILITIES

Amazon is planning to close two Baltimore-area warehouses and lay off hundreds of workers.  The online retail giant filed notice with the state that it intends to close delivery stations in Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties, effective October 25th.  The facilities are located on New Ridge Road in Hanover and Kelson Drive in Essex.  More than 350 workers will lose their jobs, but Amazon says they will all be offered positions at nearby delivery stations.
