Whole Foods expands delivery and pickup for Amazon Prime users
Amazon Prime members in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Jacksonville, Madison, Milwaukee, Omaha, Orlando, St. Louis, Tampa and Tulsa can enjoy home delivery in as little as an hour from Whole Foods Market and grocery pickup from stores is expanding to three new cities including Ft. Worth, Kennesaw and Richmond.
Amazon Prime members in those cities can now shop through Prime Now for goods including fresh produce and locally sourced items from Whole Foods Market. Now available in 48 cities, the service launched earlier this year with plans for continued expansion across the U.S. throughout 2018. Some alcohol is also available for delivery or pickup to customers in Jacksonville, New York, Omaha, Orlando, Seattle, St. Louis and Tampa.
To enjoy grocery pickup, Prime members place their order via the Prime Now app and choose the pickup option at checkout. Customers can choose free pickup in as little as an hour on orders of $35, or in 30 minutes for $4.99. After arriving at the Whole Foods Market store, customers park in a designated pickup spot and a Prime Now shopper will place groceries into their car within minutes. When customers tell the app when they are on their way to the store, groceries will be ready as they arrive.
Prime Now delivery continues to be a hit with our customers and we’re excited to introduce the service in ten new cities plus more neighborhoods in New York and Seattle. And for our customers in Ft. Worth, Kennesaw and Richmond, 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.
– Christina Minardi, Executive Vice President of Operations, Whole Foods Market

Just tried it and only got funny looks off of colleagues.
I realise now an echo device may be required first.
