Amazon Expands Grocery Delivery From Whole Foods To Atlanta And San Francisco

Prime time: Amazon brings free, two-hour Whole…

Walmart's grocery business faced stepped-up competition when Amazon acquired Whole Foods previous year for almost $14 billion.

Starting today, Prime members in those cities can shop through Prime Now for produce, meat and seafood, everyday staples and other items from Whole Foods, which was acquired by Amazon in August 2017.

Last month, we learned that Amazon had launched its Whole Foods delivery service. With Whole Foods being added to the roster, that means two-hour delivery on groceries as well, though users can also pay an extra $7.99 on orders over $35 to get their order within an hour. The concept will allow customers to order groceries through an app and pick them up at a location using a special code.

Amazon said on Tuesday it's expanding its free two-hour delivery service from its Whole Foods stores through Prime Now to Atlanta and San Francisco. "Together, we have already lowered prices on many items, and this offering makes Prime customers' lives even easier".

The service is newly available to residents in Atlanta and many of its surrounding neighborhoods, and in San Francisco and nearby communities including Berkeley, Oakland, and part of Silicon Valley.

Delivery from Whole Foods through Prime Now is available daily from 8 10 p.m.

The Whole Foods-Prime Now delivery expansion raises questions anew about the status of Whole Foods' multiyear partnership with the delivery startup Instacart, which counted the natural grocery chain as its largest customer, and still delivers orders from its stores.
