Amazon Coming to Downtown Santa Barbara!?


So… wonderful news! Well speculated news as of now, but it seems highly probable that Amazon.com has leased the recently vacated Saks Fifth Avenue building here in Downtown Santa Barbara. How exciting! It is, again, speculated the super tech/retail company will be offering its employees a wealth of office space for there R&D team on the second and third floors and a possible Amazon Go cashierless retail store on the main floor. Oh goodness, what news this is! #growth !

I obtained this information from a wonderful article on NoozHawk.com. You can read for yourself if you click here, and seems to be “unofficially” verified in that Amazon has also posted a few jobs on their own website found here for the Santa Barbara area relative to its popular Alexa device.
