TONAWANDA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — People living in Western New York are welcoming a new Amazon distribution center that’s expected to bring in hundreds of jobs.

The new delivery station is going up in Tonawanda, which is near Buffalo. The company said it will help speed up deliveries for customers in Erie County.

Construction is already underway at a 200-acre business park.
