The trade-off, however, is faster package delivery. South Florida Business Journal reports that the company noticed that many South Floridians started demanding same-day delivery. A fulfillment center in the area means that will be an available option.

The new location will be opened at 1900 NW 132nd Place. A time frame has not yet been set to open the center.

However, stranger still is that according to SFBJ at least one local business has heard that Amazon is opening a physical store in the area.

"They're doing a huge distribution facility, [but] they're also opening up a brick-and-mortar store," Ken Krasnow, managing director for CBRE South Florida, said according to the business paper.

This news comes just a few months after Amazon announced that it would be opening its first ever brick-and-mortar store in New York City.

"Amazon's space ... would function as a mini warehouse, with limited inventory for same-day delivery within New York, product returns and exchanges, and pickups of online orders," reports the Wall Street Journal of the company's NYC store.

A location for the Miami store has not yet been determined.
