Local Stores Across Cities
Stores such as Whole Foods Market, Bartell Drugs and Fresh Thyme sell their goods across different locations. The Whole Foods brand has gained most of its exposure on mass-marketing platforms. In a recent move, Amazon has started giving Prime members an extra 10% off on sale items at Whole Foods stores.
Amazon is also moving quickly to integrate Whole Foods stores as a depot instead of stocking groceries in a warehouse. This could be seen as yet another way to make its grocery segment more attractive to consumers. Currently available at Prime Now delivery markets, the Whole Foods private-label Everyday Value 365 provides a simple way to shop for healthy, high-quality food at great prices.
