The internet retailer Amazon is planning to build a centre in Prague that would provide around 3,000 jobs. The newspaper Hospodářské noviny reported that the US company was eyeing a site in an industrial park at Horní Počernice on the outskirts of the city for the 40,000 square-metre centre, which would be for returned goods. Amazon has been hiring around 1,000 people over the summer for a new distribution centre located at Dobrovíz near Prague.
