Whole Foods Market is offering early Black Friday deals on Amazon products
Customers will be able to try and buy discounted Amazon products at select stores across the US.
Over 100 Whole Food Market stores across the United States now sell Amazon devices, such as the Amazon Echo, Fire TV, Kindle e-readers and more, which will be on sale during the week leading up to Black Friday.
As well as selling Amazon’s products in its stores, Whole Foods revealed that a handful of stores would host staffed Amazon pop-up shops, where customers could test and trial Amazon devices and learn about the company’s other services, such as Amazon Prime and the the extensive library of streaming content available.
The pop-ups will be at Whole Foods Market in Chicago, Illinois and Rochester Hills, Michigan on November 13; Davie, Florida and Pasadena, California on November 14; and Union Station in Denver, Colorado November 15.
You’ll be able to ask Amazon’s personal assistant, Alexa, for Thanksgiving recipe ideas, discover how long it takes to cook a 10lb turkey or have her play the “Thanksgiving with the Family” playlist on Amazon Music.
Amazon acquired Whole Foods in August this year for $13.7 billion and is working to bolster resources and enhance the partnership, in-store and online, to take advantage of the forthcoming holiday shopping season.
Starting Monday November 20, the week leading up to Black Friday, Whole Foods Market will offer an array of deals and discounts on Amazon products, including $20 off the Echo Dot, $20 off the new Echo, $30 off the Echo Plus, $30 off Kindle Paperwhites, $20 off Cloud Cams, $20 off Fire 7 tablets and $30 off Fire HD 8 tablets.
Many Whole Food Market stores now have Amazon lockers, where customers can pick up orders they’ve paid for online, rather than receiving home deliveries. Whole Foods stores are also able to process Amazon returns.
Amazon Fresh users in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia learned last week that the grocery delivery service would be suspended in their area.
Business owners can now take advantage of Amazon Business Prime Shipping, as the global e-commerce company offers free unlimited two-day shipping for customers with an Amazon Business account.
