Amazon, Whole Foods launch two-hour grocery delivery

Whole Foods Market Amazon Amazon, Whole Foods launch two-hour grocery delivery
Russell Knight | 08 February, 2018, 16:36

Amazon announced a deal to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion back in June of a year ago, and the transaction closed in August. Combining Whole Foods' nationwide grocery footprint and selection with Prime Now's delivery logistics to provide free, two-hour delivery could prove a formidable combination.

The service allows Prime members to select free two-hour shipping on orders of $35 or more.

"We might not have every last item that could be available in your local store but we're going to have the vast majority of them", she said, USA Today reported.

While Amazon has been delivering groceries for a while now, it was their acquisition of Whole Foods that seemed to hint at the company getting serious about the food business.

Here's the idea: Instead of stocking Whole Foods groceries in a warehouse and starting Prime Now deliveries from there, the new program uses a Whole Foods store as a depot.

North Korea has no intention to meet United States officials during Winter Olympics
Tillerson dismissed the suggestion that North Korea's participation in the Olympics signalled its willingness to negotiate. North and South Korea are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.

Once a customer has placed an order, pickers-not necessarily Whole Foods employees-will manually collect the items from a nearby Whole Foods store and put them in "appropriate packaging".

As per Amazon's press release, it seems that the availability of Whole Foods delivery through Prime Now is a bit limited at the start, but presumably it should start to expand later on.

Delivery from Whole Foods Market through Prime Now is available daily from 8 a.m.to 10 p.m. Customers can visit www.primenow.com or download the Prime Now app to enter their zip code to see if they are in the delivery area.

Amazon sealed its $13.5 billion purchase of Whole Foods and its more than 460 stores in August, and moved quickly to link its operations with the Austin-based grocer. These drivers also deliver items for Amazon, Prime Now, Amazon Fresh, and Amazon Restaurants.

For 39 years, Whole Foods Market has been the world's leading natural and organic foods retailer.
