Amazon Expands Whole Foods Delivery to San Francisco, Atlanta

Amazon Expands Whole Foods Delivery to San Francisco, Atlanta

The marriage of Amazon and Whole Foods is bringing more benefits to Amazon Prime members in the Bay Area.

The expansion of two-hour Whole Foods delivery to the Bay Area comes a month after Amazon launched the service in Dallas, Cincinnati, Austin, Texas and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Amazon said on Tuesday it's expanding its free two-hour delivery service from its Whole Foods stores through Prime Now to Atlanta and San Francisco.

Amazon Prime Now users will be able to order fresh meat, produce, seafood, and other organic food items from Whole Foods.

Amazon has wasted little time in taking advantage of its Whole Foods acquisition to scale up its grocery delivery service, nearly immediately lowering prices on Whole Foods items, including deep discounts for Prime customers, and using the brick-and-mortar chain's real estate for various promotions, like Treasure Truck or holiday pop-ups. Customers can go online or use the Prime Now app available on Android and iOS devices.

For the uninitiated, Prime Now is a service available in some cities that allows Prime members to arrange two-hour deliveries of the items they purchase through Amazon. "Together, we have already lowered prices on many items, and this offering makes Prime customers' lives even easier". In addition, San Francisco customers can order alcohol through Prime Now service.

Whole Foods has more than 470 stores in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. Two weeks ago, Amazon announced that shoppers who pay with the Amazon Prime Visa card would start getting 5 percent back at Whole Foods.
