Amazon’s fastest delivery service, Prime Now, has been around in several American cities for a while now, making it possible for members to order Amazon goods for delivery within one hour.
Recently, however, the service has been updated. Since Amazon started to enter partnerships with local grocery stores and bakeries across the country it has became possible for Prime Now members to order all kinds of delicacies for delivery to their doorstep. In Manhattan and Seattle, the service even provides its customers with home-delivered alcohol.
Popular Service up for Expansion
Prime Now in Chicago is now looking at a similar expansion. From today, Prime Now members in the city can purchase groceries, prepared meals and baked goods from Plum Market, Sprinkles Cupcakes, and My Fit Foods.
- Prime Now has been so popular with Chicago Prime members that we are excited to expand our superfast delivery benefits to include groceries and treats from favorite local stores. There are times when you can’t make it to the store and there are times when you simply don’t want to go, especially now as customers are busy preparing for the holidays, said Stephenie Landry, Director of Prime Now.
Prime Now is currently available throughout 20 cities across America. In Europe the service has been launched in several areas of the UK, and in the Milan region of Italy.
