Amazon Now Delivers Whole Foods in One Hour

Amazon’s Prime Now service is offering quick grocery deliveries from Whole Foods stores in Austin Dallas Cincinnati and Virginia Beach in a trial program that Amazon hinted would be expanded

Amazon and Whole Foods today announced that they are rolling out two-hour delivery, in a move that ratchets up the ongoing retailer battle royale over who can get you your groceries fastest.

Through the Prime Now app, customers can shop thousands of grocery store items across fresh and organic produce, bakery, dairy, meat and seafood, floral, everyday goods, and other locally sourced items.

Picking Dallas as a starting point, Amazon is going up against its largest competitors in the grocery business, including Walmart, the largest USA grocer, and Kroger, the largest traditional supermarket chain.

It's unclear if Greeley's title will change or whether his appointment will affect Whole Foods CEO John Mackey's role. Select alcohol is also available.

Amazon has brought two-hour delivery to Whole Foods. Kroger, for its part, expanded its delivery options by test-piloting a partnership with Uber in 2017 in Dallas and Richmond.




Launched in 2005, Prime is Amazon's paid-membership program that gives access to a number of benefits, including free two-day shipping, unlimited video streaming, and online storage space. All purchases must add up to $35 or more and the service will be available daily between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.

When we heard that Amazon had bought Whole Foods and was integrating the chain into its business, we were left with some questions as to how exactly will Amazon make it work. It accounts as of January, Amazon had 18% of online grocery sales in the United States. Walmart, the country's largest grocer, has aggressively expanded its buy-online-pick-up-in-store option throughout the country and is eyeing same-day deliveries in NY. The company will roll out the service to more cities later in the year.

Last month, a treasure truck showed up at Whole Foods stores with deals for customers. This the company's first major integration between its acquisition of Whole Foods and its e-commerce operations.

In the case of the Whole Foods pilot, employees will pick items from store shelves, and hand them off to a driver.
