Amazon expands Prime Now product range and offers alcohol deliveries in Manhattan

Amazon has added more than 4,000 new items to its Prime Now one-hour delivery service. In a statement issued today (10 December) Amazon also announced that it has just started adding deliveries of beer, wine and spirits to the Prime Now services in Manhattan.

And in Chicago, Amazon has started offering “superfast delivery” of “groceries, prepared meals and baked goods” from local stores.

“Prime Now has been so popular with Chicago Prime members that we are excited to expand our superfast delivery benefits to include groceries and treats from favorite local stores Plum Market, Sprinkles Cupcakes, and My Fit Foods,” said Stephenie Landry, Director of Prime Now.

Prime Now is currently available in over 20 cities across the United States, including Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Manhattan, Miami, Minneapolis, Nashville, Orange County, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, Seattle and Richmond.

In some of these cities, in addition to the products offered by Amazon, the service also includes deliveries from local restaurants and stores. Through Prime Now, one-hour delivery is $7.99 and two-hour delivery is free.

Amazon started offering alcohol deliveries in its hometown Seattle earlier this year. Manhattan is the second site for this service.
