Amazon to Offer Whole Foods Delivery via Prime Now

Amazon has announced plans to bring its speedy delivery service to Whole  Foods. According to the AP, the online retail giant is set to roll out  two-hour delivery at Whole Foods this year to those who pay for Amazon’s  $99-a-year Prime membership. As part of the service, shoppers can order  meat, seafood and other Whole Foods grocery items through the Prime Now  app and website. 

Deliveries started Thursday in Austin, Texas;  Cincinnati; Dallas; and Virginia Beach, Virginia; and will expand  nationwide this year. Amazon says there’s no extra fee for two-hour  deliveries above $35, but one-hour delivery will cost $8. Its Prime Now  service is currently available in more than 30 U.S. cities, including  Seattle, Chicago, Milwaukee, and San Diego.
