Internet retail giant Amazon's fulfillment center in Livonia has gone live, a company spokeswoman said.

Shevaun Brown said its Livonia facility has received its first customer order. The first order was for custom-fit all-terrain car floor liners, she said.

The $90 million regional fulfillment center is Amazon's first in Michigan. The nearly 1-million-square-foot facility specializes in larger items such as home decor and sports equipment. The center, which is expected to employ 1,000, sits on the former site of General Motors' Spring and Bumper Plant.

Brown also said the Seattle-based company is hiring for more than 120,000 holiday season positions across the country, including 1,500 for its facilities across Michigan.
