A ribbon-cutting date for Amazon Fresh in Warrington has not been announced. But preparations for that day are proceeding. The tech giant’s foray into the local grocery market is now ready to hire, reports Michael Tanenbaum for PhillyVoice.
Amazon announced its intention to hire full-time and part-time positions for its store at 425 Easton Road in the Creekview Center.
All positions will have a starting wage of at least $15 per hour, with comprehensive benefits and a $1,500 signing bonus available to employees, the company said.
“We are proud to be part of the Warrington community and to create hundreds of good jobs with benefits locally,” said Ron Marra, store manager at the new site.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Amazon Fresh to Warrington,” said Fred Gaines, chairman of the Warrington Township Board of Supervisors. “This new store will create hundreds of jobs for our local residents and provide the community with a new, innovative and low-cost option for purchasing their groceries.”
Local buzz about Amazon Fresh has been growing over the past year as several locations — including Warrington — were rumored across the Philadelphia area. A second Amazon Fresh store in Bucks County is also expected to open in Bensalem at the former Kmart store on Street Road.
