Businesses see better days as El Paso economy rebounds from COVID-19 pandemic
Vic Kolenc El Paso Times

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit El Paso a year ago, many businesses were forced to shut down or go to greatly reduced operations because of government-imposed restrictions, and even some businesses classified as essential saw sales take dramatic drops. “It was scary when it first hit … It was like staring in the dark,” said Fiean Liem, who operates four El Paso restaurants. Liem’s restaurants — two Koze Teppan Grills, Nomi, and the Greenery — survived in one of the industries hardest hit by the pandemic in El Paso and across the nation. “We’re still here. I’m optimistic we’ll get to the other side,” Liem said.

Amazon center in El Paso is official
Vic Kolenc El Paso Times USA TODAY NETWORK – TEXAS

The badly kept secret is finally out of the bag.

Amazon, the giant online retailer, plans to open one of its distribution centers in El Paso, company and El Paso government officials announced Wednesday.

The new fulfillment center, expected to open in 2021, will create about 750 full-time jobs, starting at $15 per hour, plus health insurance and other benefits, officials said.

The planned, 625,000 square-foot El Paso facility is small compared to many of the company’s other fulfillment centers, some of which are more than 1 million square feet, and employ more than 1,000 people.

Work on the project site is already well underway in far East El Paso County. It’s located between Rojas Drive and Interstate 10, and near Eastlake Boulevard. It’s across the street from the Eastlake Marketplace shopping center, now under construction.
