Amazon Adds Alcohol Delivery Service in New Markets

Los Angeles and Orlando now on growing list of cities

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Online retailer Amazon continues to expand its two-hour (or faster) delivery of beer, wine and spirits, along with other grocery items, into new markets. This month, the e-commerce giant and owner of Whole Foods Market brought the delivery program to the Orlando, Fla., market, after launching delivery across Los Angeles and Orange County in April.

“We’ve been delighted with the customer response to free two-hour delivery through Prime Now, and we’re excited to bring the service to our [other markets and] customers,” said Christina Minardi, Whole Foods Market's executive vice president of operations. “[This] is another way that we are continuing to expand access to our high-quality products and locally sourced favorites.”

The free two-hour service from Whole Foods Markets is available to Amazon Prime Now members. The service launched in February 2018 and is now available in a dozen cities, with plans for continued expansion in the U.S. this year. Customers can access a menu of available alcohol and other products available to them by shopping from the Whole Foods Market selection at or by using the Prime Now app, available on Android and iOS devices.

A wide selection of alcohol is available via the services, according to Amazon. Prime members receive two-hour delivery for free, and "ultra-fast delivery" within one hour for $7.99 on orders of $35 or more.

Delivery from Whole Foods Market through Prime Now is available daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
