Amazon Brings Free Whole Foods Deliveries to San Francisco and Atlanta

The service first launched last month in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach with plans for continued expansion across the US throughout 2018.

On Tuesday, Amazon confirmed that it is expanding free, two-hour delivery on orders of $35 or more from Whole Foods stores to its Prime members in parts of the San Francisco region.

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

FOX 13 has tried to reach out to Volitich for her side of the story, but so far we have been unable to reach her. Meanwhile, she has been removed from the classroom while the school board investigates the allegations.

Workers will select groceries off the shelves from at least two San Francisco Whole Foods stores and bag them for delivery to online customers, said the people who asked not to be identified because the plans aren't public.

Amazon doesn't say whether or not every item Whole Foods sells is eligible for Prime Now, though it does say that "thousands of items across fresh and organic produce, bakery, dairy, meat and seafood, floral and every day staples", are. The concept will allow customers to order groceries through an app and pick them up at a location using a special code. "Together, we have already lowered prices on many items, and this offering makes Prime customers' lives even easier". Whole Foods deliveries through Prime Now are available seven days a week from 8 AM to 10 PM local time, and if you live in San Francisco, you can also include alcohol in your Prime Now delivery.

The expansion of Whole Foods deliveries, similarly, seems to be running at a quickened pace, as competition with Walmart - which runs a popular grocery pickup service - looms.
