Amazon wants to open more stores of Whole Foods to serve web shop customers faster. With more branches, more customers in the area need to get two-hour delivery, writes The Wall Street Journal on the basis of sources.
Amazon would have viewed locations in parts of the US states of Idaho, Utah and Wyoming where there are currently no stores. The e-commerce giant wants to expand its fast delivery service Prime Now to almost all 475 Whole Foods stores in the United States. It would concern delivery within two hours in more than sixty cities and a pick-up option within half an hour in some thirty cities. Amazon has not yet responded to the rumors.
Amazon started in February with the delivery of Whole Foods messages. This service is free for Prime members. The internet giant became owner of the organic supermarket chain 13.7 billion a year and a half ago.
