Amazon-acquired Whole Foods Market now offers deliveries in more than 60 cities following the latest expansion. The retailer announced today that it was making the service available for Prime Now customers in Albuquerque, Birmingham, Boise, Charleston, Colorado Springs, Hartford, Kansas City, Providence, Salt Lake City, and Stamford, as well as a few areas in Boston and Cincinnati.
The firm also expanded pickups to six new cities including Boise, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, San Diego, Tampa, and West Palm Beach, bringing pickup locations up to a total of 14 cities. The service which launched in August, saw an expansion to several areas earlier this month.
Discussing the developments, Christina Minardi, Whole Foods Market Executive Vice President of Operations, said:
“Prime Now delivery continues to be a hit with our customers, and we’re excited to introduce the service in 10 new cities. And for our customers in Boise, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, San Diego, Tampa and West Palm Beach, we’re thrilled to also offer the option of grocery pickup. It’s just another way we’re making it even easier for more customers to enjoy Whole Foods Market’s healthy and organic food.”
In order to use pickup, Prime members have to make their order via the Prime Now app and choose the pickup option at checkout. The pickup is free on orders of $35+ and can be picked up within an hour, or in 30 minutes if you pay $4.99. Pickup is restricted to between 8 AM and 9 PM, while deliveries are available until 10 PM.
