AmazonFresh Launches in San Francisco So You Can Avoid the Grocery Store
December 13th, 2013
One of the things I really hate doing is going to the grocery store. It’s not only that it’s inconvenient, but it seems like every time I go I end up with a bucket full of stuff I really didn’t want. If you live in San Francisco, Amazon just launched its grocery delivery service in your town and you won’t ever have to go to the grocery store again.
The service is called AmazonFresh and it was previously only available in LA and Seattle. The AmazonFresh service requires a yearly subscription similar to what Amazon Prime requires, though this service costs a rather hefty $299 per year. You do get the benefits of Amazon Prime as well for the money, and that fee covers all of your grocery deliveries for the year – assuming you order at least $35 worth at a time.
Once you subscribe you can get all sorts of fresh produce, meat, dairy, and dry goods delivered to your door. The deliveries can come the same day when booked by 10am, and the next morning before breakfast when booked by 10pm. You can choose a 3-hour time slot if you’d like your groceries to be left on your doorstep in insulated bags, or a one-hour timeslot for attended delivery. Amazon will even bring the groceries into your kitchen and take away the bags or shipping supplies used for delivery.
