Amazon is back in the news again this week:
“The online giant visited all 20 finalist locations, a move that indicates the company is closing in on the site of its new headquarters, reported NBC News. There is no indication if list has been narrowed down, or if there is a leading contender, according to the report.
The final 20 contenders are Toronto, Canada; Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis; Chicago; Denver; Nashville; Los Angeles; Dallas and Austin, Texas; Boston; New York City; Newark, New Jersey; Pittsburgh and Philadelphia; Montgomery County in Maryland; Washington, D.C.; Raleigh, North Carolina; Northern Virginia; Atlanta, and Miami, Florida.”
