Amazon Launches Grocery Delivery from Whole Foods Market with Plans for Expansion in 2018


AUSTIN, TX & SEATTLE, WA
Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Today, Amazon and Whole Foods Market announced Whole Foods' goods–including deli, dairy, and bakery products–are officially available for Prime Now's free-two hour delivery. While this news might have some online grocery shoppers celebrating, only neighborhoods in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Virginia Beach have access to the thousands of new Whole Foods items available for Prime delivery.

John Mackey, Co-Founder, Whole Foods Market“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, in a company press release. “Together, we have already lowered prices on many items, and this offering makes Prime customers’ lives even easier.”

Along with locally sourced goods in bakery, dairy, meat, and seafood, fresh and organic produce, everyday staples, and more from Whole Foods can now be at customers’ doorsteps within two-hour or ultra-fast one-hour delivery windows.

Prime customers can start shopping Whole Foods Market's selection at www.primenow.com or use the Prime Now app on Android and iOS devices for the full grocery selection.

Whole Foods Market

Will Amazon take its expanded Prime Now offerings to more markets across the nation soon? And will its expansion strategy keep Amazon on top of the online grocery chain? Deli Market News will continue to report with the latest.
