Starting next week, customers can expect to see lower Whole Foods prices and grocery shopping will become a little easier on the wallet.
Monday, August 28 will see Whole Foods prices drop for many of their popular items. Customers will be able to take advantage of lower prices on bananas, organic avocados, brown eggs, organic salmon, animal-welfare-rated 85% ground beef and other staple food items. Whole Foods has plans to expand to more items in the future.
In June, Amazon announced it was going to buy the popular grocery store for $13.7 billion and the time has come for customers to start seeing the benefits of the acquisition.
“We’re determined to make healthy and organic food affordable for everyone. Everybody should be able to eat Whole Foods Market quality – we will lower prices without compromising Whole Foods Market’s long-held commitment to the highest standards,” said Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon Worldwide Consumer.
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you will have another way to use your membership and take advantage of lower Whole Foods prices. Amazon and Whole Foods will begin to integrate Amazon Prime into the Whole Foods point-of-sale system, giving Prime members special savings on items in-store.
Whole Foods Market’s private label products will become available on Amazon.com, Amazon Fresh, Prime Pantry and Prime Now making it more convenient to get their products.
According to Amazon, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to making food shopping easier, better and more cost effective for their customers.
In addition to the lower prices on select goods, and the integration of Prime, Amazon Lockers will be available at select Whole Foods stores. This means you can order goods from Amazon and have them shipped to your local Whole Foods store.
This is exciting news for anyone who has an Amazon Prime membership and wants to take advantage of perks at Whole Foods. It will also make shopping for organic products accessible to more people at lower prices.
Whole Foods and Amazon haven’t released information about how much prices will lower, but you can’t go wrong with saving money on grocery shopping.
