NORFOLK, Va. -- Amazon announced Tuesday the company will open two delivery stations in Virginia next year that are expected to create more than 200 full-time and part-time jobs.

News outlets report the stations in Norfolk and Hampton will load packages into vehicles to be delivered to customers.

Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck says the company's plan to open a station in his city is “beyond fantastic.”

The director of economic development in Norfolk says officials in that city are looking forward to helping the company hire from the local community.

Amazon is building two other centers in Hampton Roads that are expected to create a total of 1,500 jobs.
