Amazon didn't wait around for its $80 million, 1-million-square-foot expansion — announced in March as the exploding coronavirus kept people home and shopping online — to keep expanding in Oklahoma City.

Same-day home delivery, anticipated in the Oklahoma City metro area since Amazon's huge fulfillment center opened here last fall, could be closer by several hundred thousand square feet.

The digital retail giant moved into a leased 312,120-square-foot mega warehouse, nearly 20 years old but retrofitted, at 6801 S Air Depot Blvd., on June 1. It is comparable in size to the 300,000-square-foot sorting center Amazon has occupied at 1414 S Council Road since December 2017.

More recently, Amazon moved into a leased 120,000-square-foot property at 6101 SW 44, ordered goods' last stop before reaching consumers, on Sept. 21.
