The draft moniker for a store in Burnsville is fueling speculation that an Amazon supermarket is coming to the area, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal reports.

Driving the news: Renderings for the 40,000-square-foot project at Cobblestone Court, submitted to local officials, include the sign "Mendel" on the development.

  • That just happens to be the same code name Amazon used to launch its Amazon Fresh grocery concept in other markets.

What they're saying: "Amazon doesn’t comment on rumors or speculation," a spokesperson told MSPBJ.

This story first appeared in the Axios Twin Cities newsletter, designed to help readers get smarter, faster on the most consequential news unfolding in their own backyard.
