Dillard’s set to close Cortana Clearance Center May 2
The last tenant in Cortana Mall, a Dillard’s Clearance Center, is set to shut down on May 2.
Dillard’s announced in January it was closing the store. For the past few months, it has had an extended going-out-of-business sale.
Amazon at Cortana will be largest prototype center chock-full of new tech, developer says
Construction of Amazon’s massive Cortana fulfillment center is tentatively set to begin the first week of June and the building should be substantially complete by September 2022.
Jonathan Stites, a senior vice president with Seefried, said the Cortana facility will be the largest prototype fulfillment center for Amazon and will feature the latest technology the company has to offer.
The building will be nearly 90 feet tall, with the second through fifth floors taken up by storage, robotics and conveyors, which will pluck items and transport them down to the first floor for packaging and distribution. None of the items stored in the Cortana center will be sent directly to customers; instead the facility acts as the first cog in the distribution system Amazon has established.
