Seattle’s Amazon Expands Whole Foods Delivery to Detroit, Ann Arbor


Seattle-based Amazon and Austin-based Whole Foods Market have launched delivery of Whole Foods products to new markets, including Detroit and Ann Arbor.

Prime members can shop through Prime Now for thousands of items including produce, meat, seafood, and other items from Whole Foods Market. The service launched earlier this year and is now available in 48 cities. The companies plan to continue to expand across the U.S. throughout 2018.

The companies also offered grocery pickup from Whole Foods Market for the first time on Wednesday and plans to expand. Currently, the service is available in Ft. Worth; Kennesaw, Ga.; Richmond, Va.; Sacramento; and Virginia Beach, Va. Prime members in these locations can place their order via the Prime Now app and select the pickup option at checkout.

Customers can choose free pickup in as little as an hour or in 30 minutes for $4.99. Whole Foods Market stores will have a designated pickup parking area, and Prime Now shoppers will place groceries in customers’ cars within minutes.

“Prime Now delivery continues to be a hit with our customers, and we’re excited to introduce the service in 10 new cities plus more neighborhoods in New York and Seattle,” says Christina Minardi, executive vice president of operations for Whole Foods Market. “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.”

Select alcohol is also available for delivery or pickup to customers in Jacksonville, Fla.; New York; Omaha, Neb.; Orlando, Fla.; Seattle, Wash.; St. Louis, Mo.; and Tampa, Fla.

Pickup and delivery are available daily from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. More information is available here.
