Online retail giant Amazon is diving further into the grocery business and seeking a brick-and-mortar location in Seattle, Washington. Meatingplace reports Amazon is now looking to build a facility in Seattle where consumers can pick up the groceries they ordered online. Dubbed only “Project X’” in planning documents with the city of Seattle; the language matches planning documents for drive-up grocery stores planned in the San Francisco Bay Area. The architect that designed the plans is also the same who designed Amazon’s San Francisco, California plans. Amazon has yet to confirm the plans. The online retailer started with book sales in 1994 but quickly grew to a vast selection of items, including groceries.
