Amazon Is Scaling Back Its Fresh-Food Delivery

Amazon is shutting down its Fresh grocery delivery service in parts of five states Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) Shuts Down Amazon Fresh Deliveries In Some Areas
Laurie Berry | 05 November, 2017, 02:12

According to emails sent to customers in parts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey (seen by Reuters), AmazonFresh deliveries will stop after 30 November.

"They probably scaled back Fresh markets that were logistically hard (meaning not close to a refrigerated fulfillment center or insufficient critical mass of customers), and will back fill those markets when they roll out delivery from Whole Foods locations some time next year". There are also posts on Twitter that suggest services will be cut in Maryland and California. Some residents of big cities like Los Angeles and Philadelphia even reported receiving a notification.

AmazonFresh customers now pay $14.95 a month in addition to the $99 Prime membership program, which gives customers access to a selection of fresh and frozen foods that can be delivered same day or next day. An Amazon representative says people in big cities like NY, L.A., Chicago, and Philadelphia will be able to continue to use AmazonFresh to their hearts' content.

Clemson Holds Off NC State for 38-31 Win
A pick-six was also crippling in the first half, but that was the only interception quarterback Ryan Finley has thrown all year. The Tigers are now 6-1 in conference play and have one more ACC game against the Florida State Seminoles next Saturday.

She said the changes were unrelated to the Whole Foods acquisition, but declined to provide more details. Amazon took 5 years to expand the service to a second city and continue to grow in other cities including worldwide ones such as Tokyo, Paris, and Berlin. These grocery customers can choose from a selection of fresh and frozen foods, in addition to some general merchandise, that are delivered on the same day of morning orders or the next morning on orders placed later in a day.

These revelations come after the online retail giant purchased Whole Foods for $13.2 billion earlier in the year.

Yet, Amazon's Whole Foods acquisition will be a key way for Amazon to continue expanding its foothold in the grocery industry.
