With more stores coming, it is currently available in Sacremento and Virginia Beach.
On Wednesday, Amazon and Whole Foods Market announced the launch of grocery pickup for Amazon Prime members beginning in Sacramento, California and Virginia Beach, Virginia. The service is expected to launch elsewhere before the end of the year.
Through the pickup service, members can now shop Whole Foods Market’s selection of fresh and organic produce, bakery, dairy, meat and seafood, floral, and everyday staples and pick up their order in as little as 30 minutes.
To get started, all you have to do is place your order using the Prime Now app and choose a pickup option. You can select 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, you’ll find a reserved pickup spot and a Prime Now shopper will place groceries into your car within minutes.
Stephenie Landry, Worldwide Vice President of Prime Now, AmazonFresh and Amazon Restaurants explains,
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. 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.
Pickup and delivery from Whole Foods Market are available each day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Also, don’t forget Amazon Prime is required for the new service.
