Amazon tests grocery pickup service

Amazon tests grocery pickup service”

Customers will be able to order online or on mobile from thousands of items, including produce, meats, dairy and everyday essentials.

An Amazon worker wheels back a cart after loading a bag of groceries into a customer's auto at an AmazonFresh Pickup location Tuesday, March 28, 2017, in Seattle. "There's no order minimum and the service is free for Prime members".

Thousands of Protesters Converge on Downtown St. Petersburg
Police said 500 to 700 people had gathered on Labour Square but did not confirm that there had been any detentions. He did not obtain permission from Moscow's mayor to hold the protest in the downtown area.

Amazon is also opening its first convenience store, Amazon Go in Seattle. The initiative is reportedly code-named "Project Everest" internally within Amazon, according to the NYT report, which also states that the company is "excited by the Indian government's efforts to encourage foreign investment in a stronger supply chain". While users must of course pay for their groceries, using AmazonFresh Pickup is no more expensive than that - there's no pickup charge. Everyone else - remember that Amazon is also planning a walk-in, pick-up, walk-out store called Amazon GO.

It's tempting to say that the delay is a stark reminder for Amazon of the challenges it will face expanding its expertise in online retail to physical retail.

West Virginia Infographic: More Offense Than you Realized

An Amazon.com Inc. drive-through grocery location is under construction in Seattle. As per the report, the company is mulling to open physical stores for items such as furniture that are usually bought by people after getting their feel in person. They tend to have less selection but offer a nice browsing experience.

AmazonFresh Pickup locations allow Amazon Prime members to order groceries online, make an appointment to pick them up and then drive through and have the grocery bags loaded into their trunk by an Amazon employee.

Video shows cops running down gun-toting, wanted woman
Officers spotted her on Saturday at an apartment complex before she got into a pickup truck and fled with the driver. While running, she turns her torso toward the approaching police cruiser and points the gun toward the vehicle.

The AmazonFresh grocery delivery service is still a small part of the company's business despite launching 10 years ago. The easier and more convenient it is for every person in the world to purchase goods from Amazon, the bigger Amazon gets. Adding shipping costs makes it even less profitable.
