CHESTER, VA (WWBT) -

For many people, the mall frenzy is not their thing, so they will let their fingers do the shopping on this Cyber Monday. It is a day where many find deals they could not find on Black Friday, and some people will find those deals on Amazon.

When customers place online orders, many of those items will be wrapped and shipped from the Amazon Fulfillment Center here in Chester.

This is the busiest day of the year for Amazon.

Last year on Cyber Monday, Amazon customers ordered more than 26 million items world wide and that includes a wide variety of products.

That breaks down to a record breaking, 306 items per minute

This year is expected to break even more records.

Of the 130 million people who are expected to shop Monday, many will do so first thing in the morning.
