The building is no small feat either and would, in theory, able to house 21 regulation football fields inside its massive walls.
Specifically, the fulfillment center is being built in Leduc Country near the Edmonton airport. The purpose of the building is to house larger items shipped by the retail giant like bikes and patio furniture, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Once completed, the fulfillment center is expected to offer 600 jobs, with that number may go up depending on how busy the centre gets in the future.
