The online retailer has been on an expansion tear over the last year and this week announced plans to open 100 more facilities nationwide by the end of the month.

The company operates at least nine last-mile distribution centers on Long Island and has plans to open more facilities. That includes a planned 300,000-square-foot distribution center in Melville, which would be its largest on Long Island.

The company opened a facility in Carle Place and wants to open another in Westhampton as well as JFK airport.
