From today, in the UK Amazon Fresh offering fast grocery delivery, free with Prime membership kicks off in London and expanding to millions of members across the UK before the end of the year.
This is like the now defunct Amazon Pantry but on steroids, as it includes just about everything you could buy in Amazon Pantry but with a ton of fresh and frozen food chucked in on top.
On a personal note I was bummed when Amazon Pantry was discontinued so you might think I’d be happy today but sadly Amazon Fresh hasn’t made it out to West Berkshire and neither has Amazon Prime Now. With Amazon Pantry gone I’m cut off so I’m hoping Amazon Fresh makes it to Thatcham before Winter… in the mean time I’m shopping with Tesco delivery instead of Amazon.
