You Can Now Pick Up Your Whole Foods Groceries In 30 Minutes With Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime members can now pick up their groceries at Whole Foods in 30 minutes for a small $4.99 fee
Do you hate having to walk around the grocery store for an hour, hunting for ripened avocados to only end up in a long checkout line at Whole Foods? Well thanks to Amazon Prime, you can now easily pick up your groceries in a mere 30 minutes.
Earlier today, Amazon announced that Amazon Prime users living in Sacramento and Virginia Beach will be able to pick up their groceries at select Whole Food stores. The company also said that it will be expanding the service across the country throughout the year. And just think, this is only six months after Amazoned partnered with Whole foods for grocery delivery, that they’re bringing this super convenient service.
Back in August 2017, Amazon acquired grocery store chain Whole Foods and quickly launched its Prime Now delivery service soon after, which allows people to have anything from tomatoes to beer delivered straight to their door. The feature rolled out on the app earlier today now allows people the option to pick up their groceries at the store itself. You can even let the store know when you’re expected to arrive so that they’ll have your groceries ready to load as soon as you get there. Prime Now users will even have their own private parking spot so that Whole Foods can bring the groceries straight to your car.
Unfortunately, the half-hour time frame will cost you an extra fee of $4.99 but if you’re not in such a rush, then you can still have your groceries prepared within an hour anytime between 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. This new service is a win-win-win for Amazon, Whole Foods, and their loyal customers. It’s been reported that customer traffic has been up the first five months of the year, which is likely due to Amazon’s cut-price deals on various items. It will be interesting to see how Amazon and Whole Foods will continue to change the landscape of how America gets their groceries.
