What shopper isn’t enticed by the call of grocery delivery? For those in Houston, TX; Minneapolis, MN; and Phoenix, AZ, the call is only getting louder, because AmazonFresh is setting up shop. The e-tailer announced this week that it is expanding its popular grocery service to above cities, giving city residents with Prime memberships access to free two-hour delivery options on tens of thousands of products.
“We’re thrilled to introduce AmazonFresh to Prime members in Houston, Minneapolis, and Phoenix,” said Stephenie Landry, Vice President of AmazonFresh and Prime Now. “Prime members tell us they want their stuff even faster. We’re happy to deliver on that ask and can’t wait for customers in Houston, Minneapolis and Phoenix to take advantage of one- and two-hour delivery from AmazonFresh.”
According to a press release, Prime members can access AmazonFresh for $14.99 per month as an add-on to their Prime membership, which lets them choose from thousands of items across all grocery sectors, including fresh produce.
And, if shoppers have an extra roommate in the way of Alexa, they can simply say, “Alexa, order sausages/yogurt/bread from Fresh,” and she’ll make sure only their favorite varieties (based on past purchases or top results) make their way to their carts.
Recently, reports have also surfaced asserting that Walmart is at the top of the grocery delivery food chain, so Amazon's latest service expansion could very much be a solution to work its way back to that number one spot.
