Amazon announced fast delivery options for this holiday season

Amazon has announced a new fulfilment centre in Lodz, Poland, to meet growing customer demand.

Amazon has expanded delivery options for its Prime members across the US who will now have access to about 10m items available for delivery the next day for free. This comes as an addition to free shipping on millions of items that all customers can access year-round on orders that are over $25.

Customers can choose to have their holiday orders securely delivered to a self-service Hub Locker, including Whole Foods Market locations, at no additional cost. Customers will also have the option to pick up their Amazon packages in-store at one of Hub Counter partner locations across the US, including staffed pickup areas within Rite Aid, GNC, and Stage stores, and at Health Mart independent pharmacies. Alternatively, they are offered the option for delivery with Key by Amazon to have orders delivered inside their home, car or garage for secure pick-up. Members are also given the option to have all their orders arrive together on the day of their choice.

In terms of grocery shopping that is made available in about 2,000 cities, Prime members are eligible for free grocery delivery from Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market with options for fast one- and two-hour delivery windows.
