(Updated at 3:25 p.m.) Another Amazon Fresh is coming to Fairfax County soon, according to a report.

The Washington Business Journal reports that Amazon.com Inc. is looking for contractors to renovate the mall space.

Not much has been publicly disclosed about the project. WBJ discovered a permit under the name LF Jennings for 12993 Fair Lakes Shopping Center, a code the company uses for Amazon Fresh stores.

Work on the project won’t begin until the second quarter of next year, according to the general contractor’s website.

It’s unclear if and how Amazon Fresh will consolidate nearby spaces for a larger store that’s more in line with its other locations. Next to it, the old Global market Saks off 5th location reopened as Spirit Halloween. (h/t to Rocket for correction)

Fairfax County has additional Amazon Fresh stores in Franconia and Lorton. Another location is in the works at Baileys Crossroads.

Amazon Fresh is a grocery service and store that allows shoppers to purchase items without having to scan them individually. Customers simply scan an app or credit card as they enter and exit the store.

Amazon also has a Whole Foods Market in the works at Springfield Plaza.
