Amazon is planning a big entry into the Twin Cities grocery market beyond just the Burnsville store we told you about on Tuesday.
- It's also working on several more suburban sites.
The state of play: Twin Cities-based food consultant Rick Shea said the Twin Cities will be a good test market for Amazon, which has already opened several Fresh stores in California and is beginning to open them in Chicago.
- "The market is still dominated by Target and Cub Foods. … It has a lot of competition. It gives Amazon a good read on how their concepts will do as they expand and roll out,” he added.
Of note: Amazon already owns Whole Foods.
An Amazon spokeswoman said the company does not comment on rumors or speculation.
