Supermarket retailer Whole Foods Market Inc. said Dec. 11 that shoppers can now pick up and return eligible purchases made through Amazon.com at special lockers located at Whole Foods stores.
The Amazon Lockers, located at nearly 400 Whole Foods stores across the United States, are the latest example of how Amazon.com Inc. and Whole Foods are integrating their businesses. The online retail giant agreed to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion in June. Since that transaction was announced, the Austin, Texas-based grocer said it would start selling Amazon devices, including the new Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Fire TV, Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets, at some of its stores.
Whole Foods announced the lockers as part of the roster of products and services it is rolling out for the holiday shopping season.
