Amazon begins grocery delivery from Whole Foods

On Feb. 8, Amazon and Whole Foods Market announced they would begin free two-hour deliveries of products from Whole Foods Market through Prime Now. The service, that begins today for Prime customers in neighborhoods of Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach, is expected to expand across the US.

Customers can use Prime Now to buy fresh produce, meat, seafood, staples, select alcohol and locally-sourced products on the Whole Foods Market selection at www.primenow.com or by using the Prime Now app.

“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,” said John Mackey, Whole Foods Market co-founder and CEO. “Together, we have already lowered prices on many items, and this offering makes Prime customers’ lives even easier,” Mackey said.

Prime members will receive two-hour delivery for free and ultra-fast delivery within an hour for $7.99 on orders of $35 or more.
