Amazon begins offering Whole Foods deliveries via its Prime serviceJon Russell / TechCrunch - 1 year ago
  • Amazon has taken a big step forward with Whole Foods after it began offering grocery delivery from the retailer through its Prime service.
  • The option is open to Prime Now customers, who get free two-hour deliveries of their products when they spend over $35.
  • The integration is limited to four regions this point — Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach — but the online commerce giant said it plans to expand the program across the U.S.
  • Amazon announced a deal to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion back in June of last year, and the transaction closed in August.
