Amazon is looking to buy four Fairway Market stores in New York and New Jersey, two months after the grocery chain filed for bankruptcy.

The e-commerce giant is focused on acquiring one store in Pelham, New York, one in Brooklyn and two in New Jersey, according to the New York Post. Although there has been speculation that Amazon would use them as distribution centers, its specific plans for the sites are still unknown.

Fairway filed for Ch. 11 bankruptcy in late January, but Amazon has not expressed interest in buying the entire chain or its brand name.

Amazon bought the upscale grocery store chain Whole Foods in 2017 for $13.4 billion. It also recently launched a cashierless grocery store in Capitol Hill and is developing a grocery store in Woodland Hills, California. [NYP] – Eddie Small
