Nobody is surprised to learn that Amazon’s Prime Now same-day delivery service is now delivering Whole Foods items in select markets:
“While most Prime Now customers will likely opt for free delivery in two hours, those needing their orders more quickly can pay a $7.99 delivery fee to have them in an hour. Deliveries are available between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time. Prices for items ordered through Prime Now may differ from those in Whole Foods’ stores.“
Sam’s Club rival, BJ’s, recently made a new hire to head up its e-commerce efforts:
“BJ’s Wholesale Club on Wednesday announced Naveen Seshadri will take on the newly created position of vice president of digital commerce and experience, focusing on the membership retailer’s continued expansion of its “omni capabilities” and leading its digital customer experience strategy, e-commerce merchandising, digital marketing and digital insights and analytics.“
