Amazon is expanding its in-garage grocery delivery service to more than 5,000 US cities and towns. Millions of eligible Prime members can now have their Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market orders securely left inside their garage.
Initially launched in April 2019, the Key program covered only Amazon parcels; the company in November began offering the same service for its affiliate grocery brands.
“As customers look for more convenience in their daily lives, we’re excited to deliver another service that not only helps them save time, but provides peace of mind knowing that tonight’s dinner is safe in their garage and out of the weather,” Pete Gerstberger, head of Key by Amazon, said in a statement.
Once the order is placed and filled, a “delivery service professional”—who has undergone “comprehensive” background checks—will appear at your garage, where they’ll await authorization from Amazon before receiving temporary one-time access to open the door. Customers can opt in to mobile notifications when groceries arrive.
“We’ve worked hard to bring the convenience of grocery delivery from Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market to even more Prime members,” Stephanie Landry, vice president of grocery at Amazon, said. “[I] believe this expansion illustrates our commitment to continually innovate to make the experience of ordering groceries online even better for customers.”
