Follow Engadget, though declined to comment on specifics of its plans, an Amazon spokesperson said, “Our focus is on providing Amazon customers with the best possible experience when it comes to grocery delivery. Whether it’s from Amazon Fresh, Whole Foods Market or one of our local stores like Bartell’s in Seattle, Morrison’s in London, or Monoprix in Paris. Partnerships with other grocers enable more customers to shop online and help us offer Amazon Prime members more choice, value, and convenience.”
Amazon will expand its grocery delivery service to the US and more European countries
If the service comes to the US, it won’t be Amazon’s first foray into the grocery delivery market. As of 2020, the company has offered a Whole Foods delivery service through its Flex program.
The company has also experimented with food delivery extensively before that, most notably in 2015 when it launched Amazon Restaurants, allowing Prime members to order food from their favorite locations. However, in 2019, Amazon closed both the Restaurants business and Daily Dish – a workplace lunch delivery service after operating for about 2 years.
