With Amazon Pantry discontinued, here’s where to shop instead.

Amazon announced that it’s discontinuing Amazon Pantry, a service that offered items like canned food, cleaning supplies, bottles of water and other bulky household products. Shoppers don’t have to worry, though — the service is being folded into Amazon’s shopping site.

“As part of our commitment to delivering the best possible customer experience, we have decided to transfer Amazon Pantry selection to the main Amazon.com store so customers can get everyday household products faster, without an extra subscription or purchase requirement,” an Amazon spokesperson told Bloomberg.

Going to miss Amazon Pantry? Here are a few alternative retailers you can shop for your groceries and household supplies.
