Packages passed down a conveyor belt before receiving a shipping label at Amazon's fulfillment center in Shakopee.

In the past decade, Amazon said it has invested more than $3 billion in Minnesota and employs 6,500 in full- and part-time jobs.

The internet giant's physical footprint has grown tremendously since it opened its massive fulfillment center in Shakopee five years ago. It now has three fulfillment and sortation centers, a Prime Now fulfillment center for its two-hour delivery service, three delivery stations, seven Whole Foods Market grocery stores, an Amazon 4-star store at the Mall of America, a tech center in the North Loop and other support facilities.

The company said between infrastructure and employee compensation, it has spent $3.3 billion in Minnesota from 2010 to 2020. It also says its facilities have created 9,000 jobs for other entities that serve them.
