business news in context, analysis with attitude

Roll down the window, put down the top … you can now add Los Angeles to the list of markets where Amazon and its Whole Foods division are teaming up to offer free two-hour delivery through the Prime Now program, and delivery within one hour to Prime members for $7.99 on orders of $35 or more.

LA now joins Atlanta, San Francisco, Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach in having the Whole Foods/Prime Now program, which is being expanded across the US.
KC's View:
It seems clear that we are going to see a growing merger of various service at Amazon/Whole Foods, as Whole Foods’ delivery offering, Amazon Fresh, Amazon Prime Now and maybe even Prime Pantry and folded into each other to the extent that they become moire compelling and relevant to the shopper. It’s also about exerting more control over the various experiences, so they are as distinctly Amazon-Whole Foods as possible.
