Amazon and Whole Foods Start Rolling Out Two Hour Delivery

Here's How Amazon Prime's New Whole Foods Delivery Will Work

The move is the latest stamp Amazon has placed on Whole Foods since its $13.7 billion acquisition last June.

Ms. Landry said Amazon would continue making Prime Now deliveries for Sprouts Farmers Markets and other businesses that are already part of the service. The reality was, for the last five years, that's what we have done. The service should be available during Whole Foods normal business hours of 8am to 10pm.

Not only does this new integration further blur the line between Whole Foods and Amazon's own grocery service, Amazon Fresh, but it gives Whole Foods customers another way to order food online and get it delivered quickly. Naturally this is also an option available to Prime subscribers, which for $99 a year doesn't seem like a bad deal considering all the perks that you get.

The orders will then be handed off to Amazon Flex delivery drivers.

Well, at least you won't have to fight for a parking space outside Whole Foods anymore. She worries about the possible mishaps: "Maybe the bananas are bruised or the cookies are all broken up, and you can't really complain because you asked for it".

And grocery chains don't want to miss out when that happens.

"Ever since Amazon introduced Amazon Fresh, it has had its sights firmly set on the grocery market". It estimates as of January, Amazon had 18% of online grocery sales in the United States.

Maggie Anderson, 38, a therapist in Cincinnati, said she has tried it at Remke, a regional chain.

On orders of $35 or more, two-hour delivery will be free, while one-hour delivery will cost an additional $7.99. "People love to shop at Whole Foods for perishables, including seafood and bakery, and those categories don't lend themselves to delivery so well".

The Seattle-based tech giant bought Austin-based Whole Foods in August. It's not clear if rival grocery delivery companies will still be allowed to deliver Whole Foods items to customers. It also plans to install Amazon Lockers at Whole Foods locations. "If I forgot something, maybe later today".
