    Default Amazon Closing Kansas Center

    This makes it all too obvious as to how national retailers operate. It's all about what are you doing for me lately.

    Amazon.com plans to close a distribution center in southeast Kansas in February, a move that will affect hundreds of workers in this rural area, the online retailer said Wednesday.

    The Seattle-based company said it regularly evaluates its network to ensure the business is placing fulfillment centers as close to customers as possible.

    Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter said the retailer has reached deals with California, Texas, Pennsylvania and New York in which it would receive a holiday for a limited period of time on collection of sales taxes in exchange for building distribution centers and employing people in those states. They are among the most populous states in the country.
