CHICAGO — E-commerce giant Amazon is opening a third Chicago-area fulfillment center in the suburb of Romeoville. The company didn’t receive any local or state tax breaks.

Employees at the more than 750,000-square-foot warehouse will pick, pack and ship large items, such as big-screen TVs, sports equipment and kayaks, Amazon said in a news release Tuesday.

After years of keeping physical operations out of Illinois to avoid sales taxes, Amazon has been rapidly ramping up operations in Will County, south of the city. Amazon announced plans for its first Illinois warehouse last summer.
