More than 68 million people are expected to shop online for Cyber Monday, and hundreds of thousands of packages will be shipped out to Amazon shoppers as a result, thanks to workers — and technology — at Thornton’s facility.

“This fulfillment center opened in June 2018. We have about 1,500 associates working side by side next to the robotics and engineering that goes behind the scenes to get those packages to customers quickly,” said Newman.

“We’ve got something special for everybody. Anybody who’s shopping for someone on their list can get a great deal today. Especially Prime members. Prime members get fast, free shipping, and in some cases, less than two hours,” said Newman. “One of the best-selling items was the Echo Dot, so if you’re looking for one of those, they’re up to 56% off today. We’ve also got Amazon fashion.”

Other electronics, including Chromebooks, laptops, and gaming systems are also being sold with big discounts.
