Amazon has announced a new service available in Reston and other Northern Virginia areas beginning today. AmazonFresh will deliver fresh foods and items from local restaurants to homes and offices in the delivery area.
Prime customers in eligible zip codes can use AmazonFresh for a monthly fee of $14.99 as an add-on to their Prime membership.
Said Amazon in a press release:
With AmazonFresh, customers can combine grocery and other shopping into one seamless experience that easily fits into their routines and improves their busy lives.
Customers can order from a wide range of items including everything from fresh groceries and prepared meals to beauty products and household goods.
AmazonFresh offers the convenience of same-day and next day delivery to your doorstep, with the choice of attended and unattended two-hour delivery windows. Place a grocery order by 5 p.m. and have it that same evening, or order before going to bed and have items on your doorstep by breakfast.
Delivery is free on orders over $40. Customers can also easily shop AmazonFresh from anywhere they are using the Amazon Mobile Shopping app.
Among the selections are fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, seafood, baked goods, and dairy, as well as pet supplies, baby, health and beauty products.
AmazonFresh in Northern Virginia also includes a Local Market program, with items from Compass Coffee, Cake Love, Capital Kombucha, and Frontier Kitchen (a food incubator for Virginia’s culinary entrepreneurs).
Just last month, Amazon Prime Now was introduced in Reston.
To use AmazonFresh, Prime customers can simply go to www.amazon.com/amazonfresh and sign up for a free 30-day trial of the service.
After the free trial, Prime customers can continue to shop AmazonFresh for a monthly fee of $14.99 as an Add-on to their Prime membership.
