Amazon devices to be sold at Whole Foods locations around the country

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us and that means Black Friday deals will start popping up any day now. These pop-ups will be available in a limited number of locations, though, and while that might have been Amazon's plan, the company might not be able to open them in all Whole Foods locations anyway.

It is also opening small, staffed shops in Whole Foods locations in Rochester Hills; Chicago; Davie, Fla.; Pasadena, Calif.; and Denver, according to a news release.

Amazon's presence in Whole Foods stores is about to get more obvious inside Bay Area locations.

Set to be rolled out in 100 Whole Foods stores, these will showcase Amazon's device ranges including its new Echo Dot, Fire TV, Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets, amongst others. The discounts vary, and include $30 off the Echo Plus, Kindle Paperwhite, and Fire HD 8 tablet.

During the announcement, though much details were not disclosed, Amazon did promise that there was still "more to come" and customers who hold Amazon Prime memberships will be getting "special savings and in-store benefits". The speaker can also be used to get info, such as the weather for upcoming trips, or to start playing music when guests arrive.
