Amazon expanding Whole Foods delivery to Anne Arundel County

Amazon is expanding Whole Foods delivery service to Prime Now members in Anne Arundel County, the online retailer said Wednesday.

The move follows Amazon’s June launch of Whole Foods delivery in Baltimore. The online giant acquired the grocer last year in a $13.7 billion deal.

“With our goal to cover as many Prime customers as possible with this new service in Annapolis, our coverage is expansive,” Tanvi Patel, head of business development for Prime Now, said in an email.

The delivery area stretches from Ferndale and Glen Burnie in the north to Harwood and West River in the south, and from Bowie and Kettering in the west to downtown Annapolis in the east.

The delivery expansion Tuesday also added Prime Now customers in Cleveland, Louisville, parts of New Jersey and Pittsburgh and additional parts of San Francisco. Amazon now offers Whole Foods delivery in 53 cities and is expanding.

“Prime Now delivery continues to be a hit with our customers,” Christina Minardi, Whole Foods executive vice president of operations, said in an announcement.

Fresh produce, meat, seafood and other products are available daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Two-hour delivery through the service is free for Prime members, and delivery within one hour is $7.99 on orders of $35 or more.
