American-headquartered online retailer Amazon has expanded its grocery delivery service from Whole Foods Market through its Prime Now service in select cities across the US.

The expansion has now made the service available across 75 markets in the US, with plans to expand the service further to more location this year.

Prime members across Asheville, Charlottesville, Columbia, Lexington, Little Rock, Manchester, Mobile, Naples and Savannah can now place one hour delivery orders through Prime Now for a range of products, including fresh produce, meat and seafood, everyday essentials and other items from Whole Foods Market.

“Prime Now delivery and pickup continues to be a hit with our customers and we’re excited to introduce the service to even more Prime members across the country.”

Whole Foods Market operations executive vice president Christina Minardi said: “Prime Now delivery and pickup continues to be a hit with our customers and we’re excited to introduce the service to even more Prime members across the country.

“It’s just another way we’re making it even easier for more customers to enjoy Whole Foods Market’s healthy and organic food.”

Whole Foods Market has also expanded its grocery pickup service to Columbus, Ohio. To use the service, Prime members can place their orders using the Prime Now app and choose the pickup option at the checkout.

Customers can park in a designated pickup spot upon arriving at their Whole Foods Market store and have their orders delivered to their cars by Prime Now shoppers.

Amazon extended its grocery delivery service from Whole Foods Market through its Prime Now, in select cities, in September last year. It first introduced its grocery pickup service from select Whole Foods Market stores, in Sacramento and Virginia Beach markets in the US, in August last year.
