Mayor Jackie Soptic has announced that Trenton has been selected as a distribution point for products purchased from the online retailer Amazon. After several months of study, Amazon officials selected a building site in the southeast part of the parking lot for Hostetler Grocery.

Mayor Soptic spoke this morning with KTTN news:



Soptic submitted eight possible sites for what’s called the “Amazon Pod,” and discusses how the site was selected:
