Amazon.com Inc. (Seattle) is reportedly planning to build and expand the footprint of Austin-based Whole Foods, which it acquired a year and a half ago for $13.5 billion.

The news comes from a report published by The Wall Street Journal. According to Inc., the company is scouting locations for larger Whole Foods stores in states and regions where they don’t currently have any stores. It cites Idaho, southern Utah and Wyoming, as well as other suburban areas that the company may be eyeing for expansion, which may mark a shift from the brand’s previous focus on urban areas. 

The company also seems to be looking to expand its two-hour delivery for Amazon Prime members with these new stores.
