Amazon expands Whole Foods delivery to Atlanta and San Francisco

The e-commerce giant launched the service last month in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach and plans further expansion across the US throughout 2018.

Walmart's grocery business faced stepped-up competition when Amazon acquired Whole Foods past year for almost $14 billion.

This new perk applies to grocery orders of $35 or more-an easy amount to spend on the endless fresh products at Whole Foods. Customers in those regions can order produce, bakery items, dairy, meat, seafood, flowers and everyday staples through Prime Now. Alcohol is available in San Francisco, although state regulations prevent alcohol from being delivered in Atlanta.

"We're happy to bring our customers in San Francisco and Atlanta the convenience of free two-hour delivery through Prime Now and access to thousands of natural and organic groceries and locally sourced favorites", said Whole Foods co-founder and CEO John Mackey. If you're like to get your groceries within one hour, you can pay an additional $8 to get them faster.

For the uninitiated, Prime Now is a service available in some cities that allows Prime members to arrange two-hour deliveries of the items they purchase through Amazon.

Amazon seems to be expanding Whole Foods deliveries through Prime Now fairly quickly, and it isn't stopping here.

The announcement comes a day after Walmart, Amazon's biggest rival, rolled out its own meal kits and "one-step meals" to more than 250 stores, with plans to expand to more than 2,000 stores nationwide this year.
