Amazon is expanding its delivery prowess into other retailers.
The retail giant has launched same-day delivery from select retail stores in more than 10 cities. The new service is free for U.S. Prime members who spend $25 or more on qualifying items and $2.99 for members who spend below $25.
Prime members can have their purchases delivered as soon as that same day from PacSun, GNC, SuperDry, and Diesel, using the Amazon app and Amazon.com. Select stores available are in more than 10 cities, including in and around Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Miami, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Seattle, and Washington D.C. Some stores also offer the option to buy online and pick up in store.
Additional retailers joining the service in upcoming months include Sur La Table and 100% Pure, Amazon said. Amazon is offering a guide to retail partnership opportunities for other retailers interested in adding the service.
When a customer places an order through Amazon, Amazon sends the order to the store, the retail store associate fulfills it from inventory in the store, and an Amazon delivery partner picks up the order from the retail location and delivers it. The available items span dozens of categories, including everyday essentials, beauty, pets, toys, electronics, and apparel.
“We see high potential in our expanded seller partnership with Amazon, which includes delivery directly from select PacSun retail locations,” said Mimi Ruiz, vice president of ecommerce at PacSun. “This is one more way for us to offer our customers the styles they want and love, when they want them.”
“The expansion of Amazon’s Same-Day Delivery to include beloved brands delivered directly from nearby retail locations is just another way we are offering customers even greater selection, at faster speeds,” said Sarah Mathew, director of Amazon Delivery Experience. “We are excited to see this new model come to life and look forward to adding more brands, stores, and locations to the program.”
This new offering has launched in more than 10 cities, and Amazon plans to expand to additional retailers and cities around the country in the months ahead.
