According to the data, Amazon helped people get used to the idea that the E-commerce company now owns Whole Foods by hawking its wares in the chain’s stores and currently, it’s embracing on the supermarket chain as part of its identity by making its goods available for purchase via Amazon’s Prime Now service. But the services are only available in selected places like Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach neighborhoods for now, but the company is also planning to expand its reach to more cities throughout the year.
Prime members will be able to order fresh produce, meat, seafood and other organic food that you can usually buy from foods and grocery stores and get them delivered to your home in less than two hours. For faster delivery or in case of a surprise visitor or have forgotten to buy stuff for dinner, you can pay $8 to get your order delivered in one hour, so long as it’s worth at least $35. Whole Foods delivery service is only available from 8AM to 10PM, you can’t rely on it for your sudden midnight cravings. To take advantage of this delivery service, simply open Prime Now’s website or download its app and check your Zip code to see if it’s available in your location.
John Mackey, Co-founder & CEO of Whole Foods Market gave a statement that “We’re happy to bring our customers the convenience of free two-hour delivery through Prime Now and access to thousands of natural and organic groceries and locally sourced favorites. Together, we have already lowered prices on many items, and this offering makes Prime customers’ lives even easier.”
