AmazonFresh

AmazonFresh

A grocery delivery service from Amazon.com. Launched in 2007, there is an additional monthly fee on top of Amazon Prime membership that enables groceries and items from local shops and restaurants to be delivered to members in select cities. The first city was Mercer Island, Washington (a suburb of Seattle).

In 2017, Amazon acquired Whole Foods, adding more than 400 grocery outlets for potential AmazonFresh service.
