Amazon.com Inc. said Oct. 10 that it expanded its grocery delivery service for Whole Foods Market Inc. purchases to serve Prime members in five more U.S. cities and additional areas in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The e-commerce giant extended the program to members of its Prime subscription service in Annapolis, Md.; Cleveland, Ohio; Louisville, Ky.; north and central New Jersey; and Pittsburgh, Pa.
Prime members in these areas can order fresh produce, meat, seafood and everyday staples through Amazon's Prime Now shopping app.
Most recently, the online retailer launched the delivery service in Ann Arbor and Detroit, Mich.; Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa, Fla.; Madison and Milwaukee, Wis.; Omaha, Neb.; St. Louis, Mo.; and Tulsa, Okla.
Whole Foods' grocery delivery service is now available in 53 cities in the U.S.
Amazon also expanded its Whole Foods grocery pickup service — launched in August — to Dayton, Ohio; Louisville, Ky.; and Omaha, Neb. The service is now available in eight U.S. cities.
Customers can collect their orders, worth at least $35, for free in as little as one hour or in 30 minutes for a $4.99 fee.
Amazon said it will continue to roll out both delivery and pickup services to more U.S. locations throughout 2018.
