Amazon have today announced the rapid expansion of Prime Now delivery in London.
Following the opening of a new Amazon delivery station in Wimbledon, the number of postcodes eligible for one-hour delivery has increased five-fold and the number of postcodes eligible for a two-hour delivery window has almost trebled since the first day of the service in June 2015.
Prime Now customers can choose from thousands of everyday items such as toilet paper, batteries and toothpaste, to last minute party essentials such as beer, snacks and fizzy drinks as well as other popular items like games consoles, gadgets and gifts, delivered right to their door in an hour or less.
The fastest London Prime Now delivery to date was a NETGEAR Wi-Fi Range Extender which was ordered at 10:32am, shipped from Amazon’s Bow delivery station and delivered at 10:44am to a postcode in Canary Wharf.
