Free one-hour pickup from Whole Foods Market is now available at all U.S. locations for Amazon Prime members. Prime members can shop thousands of bestselling items including fresh produce, high-quality meat and seafood, holiday favorites, everyday staples and other locally sourced items all available with free, one-hour pickup on orders of $35 or more.
Prime members can open the Amazon app or visit amazon.com, click the Whole Foods Market tab, select a pickup store and start shopping. Once you’re ready to checkout, select a one-hour pickup window that works for you and place your order. When you’re ready to pick up your order, check-in using the Amazon app to let the store know you’re on your way. The majority of customers who check-in using the Amazon App before arriving at the store wait just one minute to receive their orders after arriving.
While COVID-19 accelerated the adoption of online grocery services and prompted new customers to try services like grocery pickup, it’s clear that this offering will become a more permanent solution for many customers, the company says. In fact, more than 40 percent of Whole Foods Market pickup orders each month are from customers trying the service for the first time. And, according to recent data from Global Data Research, almost 68 percent of consumers say they will continue to use curbside pickup even when the pandemic has subsided.
In addition to grocery pickup, Prime members in more than 2,000 cities and towns can receive unlimited free, two-hour delivery on more than 170,000 items from Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market on orders of $35 or more.
