Amazon has announced that Prime customers in selected postcodes in London and Hertfordshire can now get grocery items sourced from Morrisons stores in under 60 minutes.
The deal follows on from a partnership announced last week with John Bell Croyden and wine merchant Spirited Wines.
Customers order through Amazon’s Prime Now app and can choose delivery within an hour for £6.99, or within two-hour, same day delivery slots for free between 8am and 10pm.
“We are delighted to welcome Morrisons’ increased selection to the Prime Now app, enabling us to grow the selection of items available to our Prime customers for one hour delivery,” said Mariangela Marseglia, director for Prime Now EU. ”
Morrisons store selection is in addition to existing local stores available on Prime Now – John Bell & Croyden and Spirited Wines – helping us to provide more than 10,000 additional items to customers for ultra-fast delivery, and we look forward to adding more stores and reaching more customers in the future.”
The announcement extends the existing Prime Now offer in London, which already includes more than 15,000 Amazon products, plus access to more than 180 eateries via Amazon Restaurants. Prime Now launched in London in June 2015, and has expanded to reach more than 30% of the UK population. Prime Now is now available in selected postcodes in London, Hertfordshire, Surrey, Birmingham, Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Portsmouth, South Yorkshire and Glasgow.
In September Morrisons announced that it was to install the UK’s largest collection of Amazon lockers within its stores, allowing customers to pick up their Amazon orders along with their food shop.
