AmazonFresh Adds Houston, Minneapolis and Phoenix
Amazon has expanded its Fresh grocery delivery service to three new cities: Houston, Minneapolis and Phoenix. AmazonFresh is an add-on available only to Prime and Prime Student members for an additional $14.99 per month.
Customers in these markets can now shop from tens of thousands of products and have them delivered in as little as one or two hours, depending on the area. Options include meat, seafood and fresh produce, in addition to center store items. Beer and wine are also available to select customers in Houston.
Shoppers can play their orders through the website, mobile app or Alexa. Consumers imply tell Alexa to order something from Fresh, and the voice assistant will add it to the cart. Alexa will remember consumers' favorites to make items such as "milk" easier to purchase.
