business park

As I was driving through the business park in Greensboro today that contains an Amazon fulfillment center, I was thinking, “there’s not a business out here that’s paying a cent in taxes.” Like so many of those parks, it had that look about it.

All buildings new, pristine. Not a one ever rented a shabby warehouse then worked up to something nicer.

I’ve seen many that were one-item companies that made such things as an anti-static wipe or a plastic injector pen. My guess is that they burn through the “incentives,” drain assets, then vanish.

But what do I know. Not a thing.

  1. “Amazon fulfillment center” what the heck is that?
    We have ***Unmarked*** return centres that are third party Liquidators but “fulfillment center”?

    • I don’t know much about it. I guess it’s one of the numerous locations from which orders are packed and shipped. Google maps calls it: GSO1 – Amazon Fulfillment Center, 1656 Old Greensboro Rd, Kernersville, NC 27284.

      There’s also a big one for Chewy not too far away.
