I'm guessing it comes down to Pitt, Nashville, Memphis, Charlotte or an about to be rebuilt Orlando.

50 K jobs is enormous, let's hope these cities don't get stupid about it though with the corporate welfare.

They might be w/holding their announcement to muster support for their move to buy Target. All of the muni's that hope to land the deal won't object to Amazon becoming a monopoly. After whole foods deal target deal cannot be allowed, they'll control too much of the supply side wholesalers. We have anti trust laws for a reason.

I'd be surprised if it ends up in PA, unions want too much.

If I were Jeff Bezos, I'd lay a $1 billion bet down on Halifax, Nova Scotia; announce that as the HQ, collect my $100b winnings, then retire.

Unfortunately, I'm not Jeff Bezos, so I'm guessing the winner will be Austin.

Agreed ......reminds me of the fictional BiLo franchise in the Wall-e movie......it’s totally a take on Amazon

Depends on if they consider Target a supply side wholesaler or retailer and then from there figure out how much market share Amazon would control. But I agree Anti-Trust laws should block something like this. However, I doubt they will.

I think this time around, this deal will not happen. Amazon has killed off at least 5-10 big retailers so far.
