The FINANCIAL -- Amazon and Whole Foods Market launched delivery of natural and organic products from Whole Foods Market through Prime Now in Annapolis, Cleveland, Louisville, North and Central New Jersey and Pittsburgh as well as additional locations in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Starting these days, Prime members in those cities can shop through Prime Now for thousands of bestselling items including fresh produce, high quality meat and seafood, everyday staples and other locally sourced items from Whole Foods Market. Now available in 53 cities, the service launched earlier this year with plans for continued expansion across the U.S. throughout 2018, according to Amazon.
Additionally, curbside grocery pickup from Whole Foods Market expanded these days to three new cities including Dayton, Louisville and Omaha. The service launched in August and is now available in eight cities with plans for continued expansion. To enjoy grocery pickup, Prime members place their order via the Prime Now app and choose the pickup option at checkout.
Customers can choose free pickup in as little as an hour on orders of $35, or in 30 minutes for $4.99. After arriving at the Whole Foods Market store, customers park in a designated pickup spot and a Prime Now shopper will place groceries into their car within minutes. For customers who tell us they are on their way to the store in the Prime Now app, groceries will be ready as they arrive.
