NEW YORK, New York — This is tasty.
Amazon is expanding its Prime Now service to offer quick delivery of food from local stores in Manhattan.
Amazon said customers can order groceries, prepared meals and baked goods from D’Agostino, Gourmet Garage and Billy’s Bakery through its Prime Now app.
Two-hour delivery is free for Prime members, while one-hour delivery in “select zip codes” costs $7.99.
The ramped-up delivery service started on Thursday in “select neighborhoods” and will be spreading through Manhattan in coming weeks, Amazon said.
The service will soon include Eataly, an upscale Italian food vendor that was victimized by a security hack earlier this year, and Westside Market, a 50-year-old chain of family-run food markets.
Prime Now is annual membership program for $99 a year that started in 2014 and includes free two-day shipping. In addition to Manhattan, Prime Now is now available in Brooklyn, Atlanta, Baltimore, Austin, Dallas and Miami.
Amazon made the announcement just days after Walmart unveiled, as a test for certain customers, an unlimited shipping service that is half the price of Amazon Prime.
