AMAZON LAUNCHES ONE-HOUR GROCERY PICKUP AT ALL U.S. WHOLE FOODS STORES

Amazon is launching free, one-hour grocery pickup for Prime members at all Whole Foods stores in the U.S., the company announced. To qualify for one-hour pickup, grocery orders must total $35 or more.

There are currently 487 Whole Foods stores in the U.S. The feature presents a new perk for Prime members. Before announcement, Prime members could pick up Whole Foods orders only at select stores. While Covid-19 accelerated the adoption of online grocery services and prompted new customers to try services like grocery pickup, it’s clear that this offering will become a more permanent solution for many customers,” Amazon said.
