Amazon has made its moves into a new market, looking to expand its grocery and retail offerings. AmazonFresh has announced an expansion into the South Florida market.
AmazonFresh will be pushing deliveries of perishable departments from the company’s Miami-Dade warehouse. Perishables include dairy products, fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, seafood, baked goods, prepared meals, and a number of other items.
AmazonFresh’s delivery service is now available exclusively to its Prime members with a $40 minimum order requirement in the following Florida cities:
The company touts a wide selection of organics, daily specials, and deals; the news source reports, for example, a 3-pound bag of Granny Smith apples priced at $5.07, a dozen cage-free eggs at $2.71, and a gallon of organic milk for $6.99.
Customers can expect evening deliveries for early morning orders, as well as next morning deliveries for evening orders.
Amazon Prime members can shop and schedule delivery off its free app or on desktop computers. Its membership is currently priced at an additional $99 a year, or $14.99 per month, for Fresh, on top of an Amazon Prime membership–currently $99 a year or $10.99 a month.
This news is just the latest in a string of strategic announcements from the online retailer that focuses on delivery and transport. As we previously reported, Amazon has indicated investments in an air cargo hub, and sea freight shipping service.
