Amazon makes garage delivery an option for all grocery delivery orders

0

Today, Amazon is expanding its garage delivery option to every city where it delivers groceries. According to the company, that’s now more than 5,000 U.S. cities where Key by Amazon Garage Grocery Delivery can be used to leave Amazon Fresh or Whole Foods orders straight to your garage. You can check if the service is available near you entering your zip code on the Amazon site.

Garage grocery delivery was initially only available in Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Seattle, and Los Angeles in November 2020, but this expansion should reach even more Amazon customers. In addition to living in a supported city, you also have a MyQ compatible garage door opener or a MyQ Smart Garage Hub to take part.

With all these boxes checked, you can select “Key Drop Off” at checkout and have the groceries delivered straight to your garage without having to get up and open the door. If you are not at home, you can watch the delivery live with a smart home camera from Ring or LiftMaster.

Since we hit the grocery store in a serious fashion in 2017 with a $ 13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods, Amazon seemed to be focused on making spending money on groceries as easy as buying for delivery. Allowing someone to bring physical food to your home is an obvious end point for that.

Amazon has also been trying to streamline the shopping experience lately: the company has opened several Amazon Fresh stores over the past year that use its high-tech Dash shopping cart, and it has announced plans to introduce a way to pay. with the palm of your hand in Whole Foods stores.
