Amazon Adds Grocery Pickup At Whole Foods Market

Following its expansion of Prime Now delivery from Whole Foods Market, Amazon is now launching grocery pickup at the supermarket chain.

Beginning in Sacramento and Virginia Beach, with more cities to come throughout 2018, Prime members can now shop Whole Foods Market’s selection and pick up their order in as little as 30 minutes, all without leaving their car, the company said.

Prime members can 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 reserved pickup spot and a Prime Now shopper will place groceries into their car.

All Prime members shopping Whole Foods Market will receive 10% off of sale items and deep discounts on select popular products whether they shop in-store, choose pickup or delivery via Prime Now, said Amazon.

“Pickup from Whole Foods Market is a perfect option for customers who want to grab healthy and organic groceries at their convenience, all without leaving their car,” said Stephenie Landry, vp/worldwide, Prime Now, AmazonFresh and Amazon Restaurants. “A customer can order at 5:00 p.m., pick up at 5:30 p.m., and we’ll have their groceries loaded into their car just minutes after arrival. For an even faster experience, customers can tell us they are on their way using the Prime Now app and groceries will be ready as they arrive.”
