Amazon is looking for a place to open a second headquarters, and it’s inviting cities and states throughout the country to show what they can offer the online retail giant. NJBIA’s Michele Siekerka recently shared with Advance Media’s Justin Zaremba why she thinks New Jersey has a shot.
Being home to Amazon headquarters promises to be an economic boon. The company estimates its new headquarters would represent a $5 billion investment and produce 50,000 new jobs wherever it is located. Amazon points out investments in Seattle, the location of its first headquarters, resulted in an additional $38 billion in the city’s economy.
