Today we’re announcing the Amazon Fresh grocery store—a new grocery store designed from the ground up to offer a seamless grocery shopping experience, whether customers are shopping in-store or online. We’ve taken our decades of operations experience to deliver consistently low prices for all, and FREE same-day delivery for Prime members.
Customers shopping Amazon Fresh will find a wide assortment of national brands and high-quality produce, meat, and seafood. Plus, our culinary team offers customers a range of delicious prepared foods made fresh in store every day.
We’ve also introduced new ways to make grocery shopping more convenient, including the Amazon Dash Cart, which enables customers to skip the checkout line, and new Alexa features to help customers manage their shopping lists and better navigate our aisles.
At Amazon Fresh, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our employees and customers. Our friends at Whole Foods Market have done a fantastic job implementing comprehensive safety measures for their team members and customers, receiving recognition as a top retailer for their COVID-19 response. We’ve taken learnings from them and applied the same safety measures in Amazon Fresh; requiring daily temperature checks for all employees, requiring face coverings for all employees and customers entering the store, offering free disposable masks for any customer who wants one, and operating the store at 50 percent capacity. See a comprehensive list of safety measures we’re taking to protect our customers and employees.
Through the pandemic, our hundreds of Amazon Fresh store associates have supported the Woodland Hills community by offering online grocery delivery out of the Amazon Fresh store, adhering to Amazon’s safety measures throughout. I’m so proud and humbled by our store associates and the work they’ve done—and continue to do—to support the community during this tough time.
