Seattle-based Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) and Whole Foods have launched grocery delivery service in Indianapolis. The city is one of five new markets for the service, which allows shoppers to buy groceries through Prime Now.
Amazon and Whole Foods launched the service earlier this year. In addition to Indianapolis, the newly-announced markets are Chicago, Houston, Minneapolis and San Antonio. Amazon says it plans to continue expanding the service throughout the year.
The company says Prime members can shop for Whole Foods Markets products including produce, bakery items, dairy, meat, seafood, flowers and everyday staples. It says groceries can be delivered in as little as an hour.
In January, Amazon named Indianapolis one of 20 finalists for its second corporate headquarters. That project is expected to involve a more than $5 billion investment and up to 50,000 jobs.
