Oct. 26, 2017 - Peninsula businessman and entrepreneur Bobby Freeman unveiled a new high-tech  E-Commerce Center at 1708 Todds Lane Thursday. He called it  a  "$15 million investment" in the people and city of Hampton and Hampton Roads. Freeman noted that the new storage, workplace and shipping facility could have been built anywhere in the region, but he chose Hampton for the first -of-its-kind commerce centers.

The new center, which has been in the making for more than two years, includes a work area with more a dozen private, lockable offices that will have high-speed internet and Wi-Fi; one of the largest UPS stores in Virginia; and first-and second-floor storage units ranging in size from 25 to 300 square feet.

Freeman noted that customers will be able to have an office in the work area, keep supplies in the storage area, and ship merchandise to customers in the UPS store.

More than 60 people, including Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck and City Manager Mary Bunting, were on hand Thursday for the ribbon-cutting. "A building like this doesn't just happen," said Freeman, who went on to thank his staff, architect, builder, designer and many others for helping to get the project finished. 

Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck called the E-Commerce Center an investment in the city, and thanked Freeman for choosing Hampton. "We want to support you and do all we can to make this a success," Tuck said.

the new UPS store offers printing, scanning, faxing, shipping, notary services shredding and more.
