Amazon Set To Launch Convenience Stores: Report

by will soon have physical stores for shoppers to buy food as the company expands its reach into the grocery business.

Using phones or touch screens, shoppers will be able to buy perishable items, including milk and meats, in stores or at drive-through locations, the Wall Street Journal reports.

A same-day delivery service will also be available, which will be exclusive to customers who sign up for Amazon Fresh, according to the report. 

Amazon just recently dropped the price of the service from $299 a year to $15 a month. The service is tied to Amazon Prime membership, which costs $99 a year.

Amazon Fresh, the company’s grocery delivery service, was first rolled out in 2007 starting in the Seattle-area ? where the company is based ? but expansion of the service had been slow, according to Fortune. 

The arrival of grocery stores comes less than a year after Amazon launched it’s own line of brick-and-mortar bookstores in November.
