NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Amazon purchased two properties in Wilson County, which is expected to bring more jobs to the area.

The Wilson County property assessor says Services LLC purchased nearly 80 acres of land in Mt. Juliet for more than $4.5 million.

The future facilities - both located on East Division Street in Mt. Juliet - are projected to process online orders in the coming years. We're told the project will bring 1,200 jobs to the area.

Amazon did confirm they've bought land in Mt. Juliet, saying, "This land purchase in Wilson County provides us with the flexibility to quickly respond to our future network needs."
