  • Whole Foods Market Trades Its Roots for Bigger Brands

Amazon has wasted little time in putting its recent Whole Foods acquisition to use.

The expansion of two-hour Whole Foods delivery to the Bay Area comes a month after Amazon launched the service in Dallas, Cincinnati, Austin, Texas and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

"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 John Mackey, Whole Foods' Co-Founder and CEO. For Prime Members in San Francisco, Amazon can deliver select alcohol as well, to accompany their groceries. The service first launched last month in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach with plans for continued expansion across the US throughout 2018.

Amazon, which bought Whole Foods a year ago, began offering delivery in four markets in February: Dallas and Austin, Texas; Cincinnati; and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Amazon Prime Now users will be able to order fresh meat, produce, seafood, and other organic food items from Whole Foods. They can place their orders through the separate Prime Now website or through the Prime Now app.

UPS also got a boost Tuesday after analysts said concerns over competition from Amazon in the delivery space were overblown.

The deliveries are done as part of Amazon's Prime Now on-demand delivery service. The company says that it will continue to expand to other regions in the United States throughout 2018, putting even more pressure on other grocery stores to compete.
