Amazon To Cut Prices At Whole Foods Starting Monday

By Brian Spaen

Whole Foods is attempting to shed the image of an overpriced grocery store with their new Amazon deal. In the near future, the organic marketplace will be lowering their prices on much of their food. For those that subscribe to Amazon Prime, they’ll be seeing even further discounts and other benefits when shopping at a local store.

Back in June, Amazon purchased Whole Foods in a deal worth $13.7 billion. That deal will be closing on Monday, August 28th, and there will already be a significant impact. Many organic food items, such as produce, salmon, butter, and various 365 Everyday Value store-branded items will be knocked down in price. Many of their branded products will also be sold on the Amazon website.

Over time, Amazon Prime will be offering a customer rewards program for Whole Foods shoppers. There will be discounts and “other in-store benefits,” which continue to make the subscription service even more valuable. At the moment, Amazon Prime members enjoy special discounts already with Prime Pantry. This offers various food items, cosmetics, and apparel at competitive prices.
