1. Amazon is planning to build another massive delivery warehouse in West Michigan.

If approved, the company's new warehouse would sit on 330acres of land near 4 Mile and Hendershot in Walker. The site is located right across the street from Kenowa Hills High School.

City officials say the warehouse would be active 24/7 and that a road connection project on Northridge Drive would help with the flow of traffic.

The city says the facility would bring 1,000 new jobs to the area. The city's planning commission is set to review the proposal.

2. SpartanNash is looking to hire more than 1,000 people in its grocery retail stores.

They own several stores, including Family Fare and D&W Fresh Market.

Some available jobs include baristas, personal shoppers, deli clerks, and meat apprentices. Jobs are also available at the company's warehouse distribution centers and corporate service centers.

Those interested in applying can go to SpartanNash's website or can visit a local company-owned store.

3. Dave and Buster's is reopening their Kentwood location on Friday at 4 p.m.

As with many other places, employees will be health screened before starting their shift and will be required to wear masks and gloves.

Guests will also have to wear masks and gloves will be provided for those who wish to wear them while playing games.

For more details just head to their website.

4. Halloween is likely going to look very different this year for kids all over the country.

Lowe's Home Improvement stores want to make sure that doesn't mean it's canceled entirely. That's why the warehouse stores are offering drive-through curbside trick-or-treating.

Families register in advance on to reserve a spot. Then, on either October 22 or 29, they can drive up to the store for free candy and a small pumpkin.

Costumes are encouraged, but not required.

5. Oktoberfest has been canceled this year, but you can still celebrate at home.

Snyder's of Hanover and Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in New York State have teamed up to offer "The Pretzel Keg."

It keeps your beer and your pretzels, which are two staples of Oktoberfest in one package.

It's a five-liter keg of Marzen Style Oktoberfest Lager and a 27-ounce canister of baked pretzel rods.

It goes on sale Wednesday at $49.99.
