Whole Foods offers free 2-hour delivery in Boston

The companies said Tuesday that Amazon Prime members can now get free two-hour delivery from Whole Foods stores in Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia and Richmond, Va. The latest expansion makes the service available in 14 cities overall, with Amazon planning to bring it to more cities this year.

A national Whole Foods Market announcement from last month is coming into action locally.

In addition to Boston, Whole Foods is now offering Prime Now deliveries in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Richmond.

Those who live in the Boston area, subscribe to Amazon Prime and purchase from Whole Foods are in luck. Bestsellers include thousands of items, including "fresh produce, high-quality meat and seafood, everyday staples and other locally sourced items from Whole Foods Market", Amazon said in a statement.

While grocery items will be shipped to customers within two hours for free, Prime members can also choose to pay $7.99 to have their orders costing $35 or more delivered within an hour. It has also introduced a 10 percent discount on grocery purchases to Prime members in several states since the e-commerce giant purchased the grocery chain past year. The service is offered daily from 8 a.m. through 10 p.m. The retailer noted that the Burbank store will house Stage 71, a dining and drinking destination offer bar food favorites plus a selection of local craft beers on tap, wine and specialty cocktails.
