SoCal Amazon warehouse fulfilling millions of Cyber Monday orders

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (KABC) -- Things are in full swing at the Amazon fulfillment center in San Bernardino.

They are processing millions of orders as consumers snag deals on Cyber Monday.

"It's our Super Bowl. We get ready all year long for that all year long for days like this," said Amazon Operations Manager David Koneck.

It's a modern-day Santa's workshop, with eight miles of conveyor belts.

"It's over a million square feet in this facility and we have several thousand people that work just in this facility alone," said Amazon VP Drew Herdener.

Last year for Cyber Monday, Amazon customers ordered 64 million products. "That's 740 per second," said Koneck. "We're expecting to do a lot more than that this year."

At a retail giants like this, you can find virtually anything, but you may be surprised to hear that 50 percent of what Amazon sells is from small businesses like Kelly Fedio's One Savy Girl.

"Cyber Monday is typically our best-selling day every year since we have been selling," said Fedio.
