Ama­zon now of­fer­ing Whole Foods de­liv­ery

Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD - — Brian Com­pere

Ama­zon Prime mem­bers in Bal­ti­more can now have or­ders from Whole Foods Mar­ket de­liv­ered within a cou­ple of hours, Ama­zon an­nounced Tues­day. The ser­vice, of­fered through Ama­zon’s Prime Now, also launched in Bos­ton, Philadel­phia and Richmond, Va. Ama­zon plans to ex­pand the ser­vice to other U.S. cities this year. Two-hour de­liv­ery through the ser­vice is free for Prime mem­bers, and de­liv­ery within one hour is $7.99 on or­ders of $35 or more. De­liv­ery is avail­able daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Prime Now ser­vice for Whole Foods de­liv­er­ies comes about a year after Ama­zon agreed to ac­quire Whole Foods in a $13.7 bil­lion deal that rat­tled the gro­cery in­dus­try. Ama­zon’s takeover of the pre­mium gro­cer could trans­form food shop­ping just as it rev­o­lu­tion­ized other re­tail seg­ments. The on­line re­tailer has been rolling out dis­counts on Whole Foods items for Prime shop­pers as well, but that pro­gram has not reached Mary­land.
