Amazon now offers Whole Foods deliveries

Amazon begins offering Whole Foods deliveries via its Prime service Amazon has taken a big step forward with Whole Foods after it began offering grocery delivery from the retailer through its Prime
| 11 February, 2018, 05:40

The 757 may have not made the short list for Amazon's second headquarters, but the company hasn't forgotten about the area. The service debuted in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach. In fact following the acquisition of Whole Foods, Amazon has recently announced that they will now deliver Whole Foods groceries through its Prime Now program. The service is available every day from 8 a.m.to 10 p.m. local time.

As part of the deal, Prime Now customers get free two-hour delivery of their shopping after spending more than $35. Amazon has also said that it plans to eventually roll the service out to all its Prime customers across the US.

Since Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) bought natural foods supermarket chain Whole Foods past year, the e-commerce giant has been busy placing its own electronics into hundreds of locations. Over the past few years, both Kroger and Wal-Mart have expanded their online grocery businesses in North Texas with their curbside pick-up options.

"Together, we have already lowered prices on many items, and this offering makes Prime customers" lives even easier'.

Prime Now will also deliver from other grocery stores and restaurants in the markets where it operates.


According to the Wall Street Journal, Amazon's latest move is "one of the first to potentially take aim at major grocers racing to offer deliveries and pick-ups to better compete with Amazon". Customers can visit the Prime Now website or the Prime Now app and enter their ZIP code to see if delivery is available where they live. Now it's bringing its super-fast shipping service to the supermarket so customers can go organic in two hours or less.

It's unclear if Greeley's title will change or whether his appointment will affect Whole Foods CEO John Mackey's role. It estimates as of January, Amazon had 18% of online grocery sales in the United States.

Those familiar with the service may have already purchased Whole Foods' private label, Everyday Value 365, which is already available on Prime Now in many markets.

"We're going to have a huge expansion ahead", stated Landry.
