Dear shoppers, here’s another reason to subscribe to Amazon’s $99/year Prime Membership if you haven’t done so yet.
Following the approval of Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods, which will close on August 28, 2017, the e-commerce giant announced the many changes that will happen in both companies beginning this Monday.
“We’re determined to make healthy and organic food affordable for everyone. Everybody should be able to eat Whole Foods Market quality – we will lower prices without compromising Whole Foods Market’s long-held commitment to the highest standards,” said Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon Worldwide Consumer.
“It’s been our mission for 39 years at Whole Foods Market to bring the highest quality food to our customers. By working together with Amazon and integrating in several key areas, we can lower prices and double down on that mission and reach more people with Whole Foods Market’s high-quality, natural and organic food. As part of our commitment to quality, we’ll continue to expand our efforts to support and promote local products and suppliers. We can’t wait to start showing customers what’s possible when Whole Foods Market and Amazon innovate together,” said John Mackey, Whole Foods Market co-founder and CEO.
Here’s what to expect on Monday, August 28, 2017:
- As a start, prices for organic bananas, salmon, large brown eggs, lean ground beef, chicken, avocados, kale, butter and other grocery staples will be offered by Whole Foods in a much lower price point.
- Next, you can purchase Whole Foods Market’s healthy and high-quality private label products online through Amazon.com, Amazon Fresh, Prime Pantry and Prime Now.
- Amazon Lockers will also be available in select Whole Foods Market stores for pick-up and return of your Amazon orders.
- Last but not the least, the Amazon Prime will be integrated with the Whole Foods Market, giving Prime members exclusive special savings and in-store benefits at Whole Foods grocery chains.
