AmazonFresh Pickup Stores Open to the Public
SEATTLE — Amazon's efforts to meaningfully enter the grocery market continue with the opening of AmazonFresh pickup locations in the Seattle area.
After months of beta testing with Amazon employees, the retailer officially unveiled the pickup locations on May 25. Now, these locations can be accessed by all Amazon Prime members, who can expect to pick up their orders in as little as 15 minutes after they're placed via AmazonFresh.
When Amazon's beta testing for this click-and-collect program began earlier this year, Amazon touted the service on its website, saying: "Whether you're shopping for your weekly groceries or picking up a last minute item, we have thousands of grocery items available at low prices — including high-quality meats, fresh produce, bread, dairy, household essentials, and more."
AmazonFresh Pickup locations are currently located in the Seattle neighborhoods of SoDo and Ballard.
