Brooklyn, NY—Whole Foods Market has opened its first delivery-only store in Brooklyn NY, according to Reuters.
A press release from Amazon says that the planning for this store format began more than a year ago.
Amazon has hired hundreds of employees to work at the store, which will only deliver to local customers.
Reuters notes that grocery delivery is one of the fastest-growing businesses at Amazon. Amazon says that grocery sales tripled year-over-year in the second quarter of this year.
