A relatively small area is still covered by Amazon’s Whole Foods delivery service, but it is expanding at the moment. Chicago, Houston, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, and San Antonio are added by the internet giant’s Prime-based grocery deliveries. So essentially it added millions extra-quick access to produce, meat, everyday food, and “select” alcohol. Like everywhere else delivery is available between 8 AM and 10 PM and shouldn’t cost extra if you’re ordering at least $35. You can spend $8 if you need your food within an hour. The company promises ongoing expansion in the US throughout 2018.
The widened coverage comes mere hours after Amazon brought Prime discounts to all Whole Foods stores in the country. It suggests that the company is well on the way to completing its strategy: it’s taking advantage of Prime subscriptions and its delivery network to provide grocery options that aren’t always easy to match.
