Amazon looking to expand its grocery delivery business across Western North America

Amazon is planing to expand its Prime Now service to nearly all of its roughly 475 Whole Foods stores in the country and not just limit the expansion to Western North America.

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Amazon.com Inc plans on expanding its Whole Foods Market portfolio by adding more stores and thus place more customers within its two-hour delivery service range.

Already Whole Foods employees have visited regions of Western North America for potential retail spaces in parts of Idaho, Wyoming and southern Utah where it currently has no brick-and-mortar stores, stated the Journal citing a source.

Currently, Amazon’s Prime Now services include a two-hour delivery option to subscribers in more than 60 cities, and online grocery pickup from Whole Foods stores in as little as 30 minutes from nearly 30 cities.
