Amazon wants to change the way you get groceries. Maybe you need to pick up some supplies, but are too lazy to shop for them in the store. Amazon has you covered. As long as you are still willing to pick those groceries up.
In Seattle on Thursday, the company opened a grocery store that doesn’t even require you leave your vehicle. Just “drive in… and drive out.”
The service is called AmazonFresh Pickup, and it is now live at two locations: in the SODO and Ballard neighborhoods of Seattle. It’s free for Prime members and there is no minimum order amount,which is nice. Customers just place their order online, drive to the store and wait. Once the order is ready, an employee brings it out to the car and puts it in the trunk for you. That’s it. Just drive off and laugh because it is so easy.
The stores carry everything you’d expect to find at your local supermarket, but just be prepared to pay a higher price. You can expect to pay $1 per lemon, $6.60 for a gallon of milk and $1.29 per apple. The alternative is that you can just do your shopping like you always have and save some cash. This is for shoppers who value convenience more than price.
