Amazon offers tours of Chester fulfillment center

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Amazon is opening the doors to its Chester fulfillment center to the public.

The online giant announced Tuesday it will begin offering public tours of its facility located in the Meadowville Technology Park.

The company says the tours are in response to public interest in seeing how orders are processed once customers click “buy now” on the Amazon website.

“When you come out to see an Amazon fulfillment center, you get to see 20 years of innovation, technology, and people working together,” Amazon Associate Brooke Pizzetti said.

Amazon offers public tours at 23 fulfillment centers across the country. The Chester facility is the only location offering tours in Central Virginia. Tours are offered twice a day, five days a week.

Customers who want to take a tour must place a reservation online.
