DEPEW, N.Y. -- Amazon is making a big push to hire thousands of people across the country — including here in Western New York.

The company is holding a "job day" event across the country next week as it looks to hire 50,000 people.

One of those job events is for a "sortation" center opening in Lancaster on Walden Ave.

Amazon says jobs available are for part-time Sortation Associates.

You can check out the event Wednesday, Aug. 2 at The Delavan Hotel, 6461 Transit Road in Depew, from 8 a.m. until noon.

The local center is expected to open later this year.
