Amazon Said To Expand Whole Foods Delivery To San Francisco

Amazon plans to offer grocery deliveries from Whole Foods stores in San Francisco, according to people familiar with the matter, expanding a test of the service launched in four other cities.

Workers will select groceries off the shelves from at least two San Francisco Whole Foods stores and bag them for delivery to online customers, said the people who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public.

Grocery Delivery

Amazon last month began offering delivery from the organic grocer, which it bought last August, in four markets: Dallas and Austin, Texas; Cincinnati; and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

The two-hour delivery service is free for Amazon Prime customers. Amazon said at the time it plans to roll out the service nationwide.

It’s unclear exactly when San Francisco delivery will be available or if other cities will also debut at the same time. Amazon and Whole Foods didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
