Amazon to open warehouse in Ruskin

Posted: Updated:
RUSKIN (FOX 13) -

Amazon is officially setting up shop in Hillsborough County. The online giant has just signed a long-term lease.

Construction on a one-million-square-foot warehouse in Ruskin's South Shore corporate park starts right away.

Amazon is also bringing along 1,000 new jobs.

The good news comes with a catch, though.  Customers in Florida will be required to pay a six-percent sales tax on stuff they buy on Amazon.com.

The tax will kick in once the company opens in Florida.
