The American tech conglomerate, Amazon, and the U.S.-based supermarket chain, Whole Foods Market, are reportedly taking their partnership to another level with the expansion of Amazon’s Prime Now delivery network from Whole Foods Market to as many as 13 new metros. 

As per genuine sources, the new metros include Destin & Tallahassee, FL; Allentown, PA; Chattanooga & Knoxville, TN; Jackson, MS; Greensboro & Wilmington, NC; Fort Collins, CO; Palm Desert, CA; Portland, ME and Huntsville & Montgomery, AL. The expansion of the service will continue throughout the year 2019. Prime members can now shop for numerous items such as bakery, meat & seafood, fresh & organic produce, dairy and daily staples, from Whole Foods, while select alcohol is available for delivery in areas including Destin, Tallahassee, Greensboro, Wilmington and Palm Desert, added sources.

Christina Minardi, EVP of operations, Whole Foods Market, was quoted stating that Prime Now delivery continues to remain as successful as ever with all customers and the company is thrilled to expand the service to more Prime members throughout the country. She further commented that by means of the latest move, it is getting easier for more customers to avail the healthy & organic food of Whole Foods Market.

Reportedly, Amazon’s sales last week at its physical stores including around 500 Whole Foods supermarkets, Amazon bookstores, pop-ups & Amazon Go cashier-less convenience stores, rose up for the first quarter by 1 per cent to $4.3 billion.

Brian Olsavsky, Amazon’s Chief Financial Officer, said that more Prime members have embraced the Whole Foods benefits more than any other service offered by the company, which is making them save hundreds of bucks. The company looks to increase the coverage for delivery, he added.
