retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• Amazon said this morning that it is extending free, two-hour delivery of purchases from its Whole Foods stores from the original four markets that launched last month - in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach - to Atlanta and San Francisco.

The expansion begins today, and is being powered by Amazon’s Prime Now service via apps available on Android and iOS devices.

Amazon says that “Prime members receive two-hour delivery for free and ultra-fast delivery within one hour for $7.99 on orders of $35 or more.”
