AUSTIN, Texas & SEATTLE (Sep. 26, 2018) — Amazon and Whole Foods Market today launched delivery of natural and organic products from Whole Foods Market through Prime Now in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Jacksonville, Madison, Milwaukee, Omaha, Orlando, St. Louis, Tampa and Tulsa as well as additional areas of New York City and Seattle. Starting today, Prime members in those cities can shop through Prime Now for thousands of bestselling items including fresh produce, high quality meat and seafood, everyday staples and other locally sourced items from Whole Foods Market. Now available in 48 cities, the service launched earlier this year with plans for continued expansion across the U.S. throughout 2018.
Today also marks the first expansion of grocery pickup from Whole Foods Market, another convenient option for grocery shopping. Grocery pickup launched last month and is now available in Ft. Worth, Kennesaw, Richmond, Sacramento and Virginia Beach, with continued plans for expansion. To enjoy grocery pickup, Prime members place their order via the Prime Now app and choose the pickup option at checkout. Customers can choose free pickup in as little as an hour on orders of $35, or in 30 minutes for $4.99. After arriving at the Whole Foods Market store, customers park in a designated pickup spot and a Prime Now shopper will place groceries into their car within minutes. For customers who tell us they are on their way to the store in the Prime Now app, groceries will be ready as they arrive.
“Prime Now delivery continues to be a hit with our customers and we’re excited to introduce the service in ten new cities plus more neighborhoods in New York and Seattle,” said Christina Minardi, Whole Foods Market Executive Vice President of Operations. “And for our customers in Ft. Worth, Kennesaw and Richmond, we’re thrilled to also offer the option of grocery pickup. It’s just another way we’re making it even easier for more customers to enjoy Whole Foods Market’s healthy and organic food.”
