Amazon employees affiliated with the company's search for a second headquarters have visited Chicago and Miami for a second time, according to news reports, fueling speculation the world's largest online retailer is still debating where it will locate its $5 billion home base.

Members of the HQ2 selection team returned to Chicago in August to take another look at a 62-acre planned development called The 78, per The Chicago Tribune, and visited Miami in recent weeks, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

Amazon, which announced last week it would raise its minimum wage for all workers to $15, is set to announce by the end of 2018 where it will create more than 50,000 jobs over the next decade. The process started over a year ago when Amazon announced its desire to create a second campus.

Chicago and Miami were among 238 cities and regions that submitted proposals and were two of 20 final contenders.
