Amazon and Empty Storefronts: 2015 Update

New Hampshire: Essential Findings

In 2015, Amazon sold $272.3 million worth of retail goods statewide.

That is the equivalent of 189 retail storefronts, 0.7 million square feet of commercial space, which might have paid $3.6 million in property taxes.

A total of more than $3.6 million in revenue lost to state and local governments, an effective subsidy of $6.96 for every household in New Hampshire.

Amazon also operated 0.1 million square feet of distribution space in New Hampshire, employing roughly 95 workers.

Even counting all the jobs in Amazon distribution centers, Amazon sales produced a net loss of 1,541 retail jobs in New Hampshire.
