Congratulations, America, your dreams have come true. Since February 8, Amazon Prime members in certain states could get Whole Foods groceries delivered straight to their front door in just two hours. And now, that luxury is being afforded to more users across the country.
The latest cities to get Whole Foods delivery courtesy of Amazon Ann Arbor and Detroit, Michigan; Jacksonville and Orlando, Florida; Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Omaha, Nebraska; St. Louis, Missouri; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. New neighborhoods of New York City and Seattle are also a part of the latest expansion.
The latest announcement comes over a year after Amazon completed its acquisition of the grocery chain, and may just be the best thing to come of the merger. Any purchase over $35 can now be delivered free of charge in no more than 120 minutes, which really does feel like the pinnacle of technological achievement.
“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,” Christina Minardi, Whole Foods Market Executive Vice President of Operations, said in a statement. “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.”
As it stands, subscribers in 48 cities in markets across the country can now take advantage of this new offering, but Amazon plans to continue expanding across the U.S. Simply shop through Prime Now for Whole Foods items like produce, meat, and seafood, household staples, and other locally sourced items. All available items can be found either at the Prime Now website or on the Prime Now app available on both Android and iOS devices. Folks in San Francisco, Jacksonville, New York, Omaha, Orlando, Seattle, St. Louis, and Tampa also have the option of getting their alcoholic beverages delivered.
If you’re really in a rush, you can also get Amazon to deliver your groceries to you in under 60 minutes for an additional $8. That said, you still have to hit the $35 threshold in order for you Prime perks to kick in — anything under that, and you have to make the schlep to a physical store, which Amazon has practically turned into a drive-through with curbside pickup.
Delivery from Whole Foods by way of Prime Now is available every day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time. To see if you’re eligible for the service, visit the Prime Now website or app and enter your zip code.
