The Amazon Prime online service has given Buffalo-area members another reason to stay on the couch: free delivery of groceries from Whole Foods.
Prime members can download an app or shop from their computer, order groceries from across the store, bakery to butcher shop. Orders over $35 will be delivered free, within two hours, according to an Amazon press release.
Numerous area supermarkets – Wegmans, Tops, Aldi, Price Rite – already offer online shopping, through Instacart, charging various delivery fees. Dash's Market, the first grocer in the region to offer online shopping, uses the app Rosie.
How far will Whole Foods’ delivery drivers go for free? At the area’s only Whole Foods, 3139 Sheridan Drive, Amherst, an employee said she did not have a map, and that users would find out when they entered details for an order.
A West Seneca order was approved, while a Springville order was not.
