In a month’s time from the point Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) started selling its Whole Foods grocery through its Prime Now service in a number of cities, reports indicate that the retailer proceeded to make an announcement disclosing that it had plans to venture into the expansion of its services in two other major markets. These two markets are in Atlanta and San Francisco.
An official working with the only the retailer opined, “The two new additions join existing markets for Whole Foods/Prime Now deliveries, Cincinnati, Austin, Virginia Beach and Dallas– a list that also includes some HQ2 contenders. Not that you should take any of this as a sign as to where Amazon’s considering building HQ2, of course – but chalk it up to another potential signal.”
A lot of people have been seeking to find out much more regarding the debut markets but the one point worth noting is the fact that the those customers that make orders from the Whole Foods are able to reap from a wide array of associated benefits. One of them is that they are in a position to obtain fresh produce, sea food, meat, dairy bakery items as well as other everyday groceries.
Asides from that they also obtain the free two-hour delivery on orders of $35 or more and there is also the chance they could end up opting for the one-hour delivery for a $7.99 charge.
Amazon made a statement recently where it disclosed that in the state of San Francisco it was able to deliver select alcohol and several groceries as well. At the moment, Prime Now can be accessed between 8 AM to 10 PM and of course that is on a daily basis.
The online ordering is growing pretty popular with the passage of time and the Prime Now app for iOS and Android is for sure a step in the right direction according to several market observers following closely on the matter.
