Amazon will open a delivery station at Northcrest Drive and Spring Stuebner Road in Spring in 2021, according to a March 24 press release.

The station will bring in about 300 full-time jobs paying $15 an hour as a starting wage. The station is one of four that will open in the Houston area during 2021.


“We are excited to continue our investment in Texas with new delivery stations across Houston that will create hundreds of new job opportunities and provide faster and more efficient delivery for customers," Amazon spokesperson Daniel Martin said in the press release. "We look forward to continuing our growth in Texas and want to thank local and state leaders for their support in making these projects possible.”

The stations will open through the summer and second half of 2021. No phone number has been released at this time. www.amazon.com
