Amazon introduces grocery pickup from Whole Foods

Amazon and Whole Foods Market announced the launch of grocery pickup beginning in Sacramento, CA, and Virginia Beach, with more cities to come throughout 2018. Customers can now shop Whole Foods Market selection of fresh and organic produce, bakery, dairy, meat and seafood, floral and everyday staples and pick up their order in as little as 30 minutes, all without leaving their car. amz

“Pickup from Whole Foods Market is a perfect option for customers who want to grab healthy and organic groceries at their convenience, all without leaving their car,” said Stephenie Landry, worldwide vice president of Prime Now, AmazonFresh and Amazon Restaurants. “A customer can order at 5 p.m., pick up at 5:30 p.m., and we’ll have their groceries loaded into their car just minutes after arrival. For an even faster experience, customers can tell us they are on their way using the Prime Now app and groceries will be ready as they arrive.”

To enjoy grocery pickup, Prime members place their order via the Prime Now app and choose the pickup option at checkout. Customers can choose free pickup in as little as an hour on orders of $35, or in 30 minutes for a $4.99. After arriving at the Whole Foods Market store, customers park in a reserved pickup spot and a Prime Now shopper will place groceries into their car within minutes.

In addition to grocery pickup, Prime members in dozens of cities have access to grocery delivery from Whole Foods Market. Prime members can also voice shop with Alexa by adding Whole Foods Market groceries to their Prime Now cart. This feature makes it simple for the whole family to get the items they need, customers simply say, “Alexa, add eggs to my Whole Foods cart,” and when ready they place their order and checkout using the Prime Now app. All Prime members shopping Whole Foods Market will receive 10 percent off hundreds of sale items and deep discounts on select popular products whether they shop in-store, choose pickup or delivery via Prime Now.
