“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.”
Stephenie Landry, Worldwide Vice President of Prime Now, AmazonFresh and Amazon Restaurants.
How It Works
To enjoy grocery pickup, Prime members place their order via the Prime Now app and choose the pickup option at checkout.
Customers can choose 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, customers park in a reserved pickup spot and a Prime Now shopper will place groceries into their car within minutes.
For customers who tell us they are on their way in the Prime Now app, groceries will be ready as they arrive.
In addition to grocery pickup, Prime members in dozens of cities can enjoy ultrafast grocery delivery from Whole Foods Market.
Shopping Whole Foods Market for delivery or pickup is even easier with Alexa. Anyone in the family can use Alexa to add items to their cart whenever they think of something they need, eliminating the need for a paper shopping list or trying to remember what the family ran out of.
It’s as easy as saying, “Alexa, add eggs to my Whole Foods cart.” When ready to check out, just say, “Alexa, checkout my Whole Foods cart.”
All Prime members shopping Whole Foods Market will receive 10 percent off hundreds of sale items and deep discounts on select popular products whether they shop in-store, choose pickup or delivery via Prime Now.
Pickup and delivery from Whole Foods Market are available daily from 8am to 10pm.
To learn more about grocery pickup or delivery from Prime Now, visit www.primenow.com. Customers can also find out if these services are available in their area by saying, “Alexa, shop Whole Foods Market.”
