Amazon Expands In-Garage Grocery Delivery to More Than 5,000 Cities and Towns
SEATTLE, WA - Amazon and innovation go hand in hand. It comes as no surprise that the retailer is fortifying its convenience factor yet again, as it announced another expansion of its Key In-Garage Delivery to everywhere that grocery delivery from Amazon is available. This expansion will allow millions of Prime members across 5,000 U.S. cities and towns to have their Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market groceries delivered safely inside their garage.
“Customers who tried Key In-Garage Grocery Delivery have loved the service, which is why we’re expanding it to everywhere Amazon offers grocery delivery,” said Pete Gerstberger, Head of Key by Amazon. “As customers look for more convenience in their daily lives, we’re excited to deliver another service that not only helps them save time, but provides peace of mind knowing that tonight’s dinner is safe in their garage and out of the weather.”
Eligible Prime members can shop online at Amazon Fresh or Whole Foods and build a cart just like they would for any delivery order. Customers with a compatible garage door opener or myQ Smart Garage Hub can connect the myQ app with Key, then simply select “Key Delivery” at checkout, according to a press release. Once the order is placed, a trained shopper will fulfill the order, and it is then delivered by a service professional. Customers can easily use the Key by Amazon app or the Amazon mobile shopping app to be notified when their groceries arrive.
Key In-Garage Grocery Delivery is available at no additional cost to eligible Prime members. A myQ connected smart garage door opener is required to enable garage access for secure delivery. To view videos of their delivery, customers can use a compatible Ring smart home camera with their Ring Protect Plan, or LiftMaster Smart Garage Camera powered by myQ with a myQ Video Storage Subscription.
“We’ve worked hard to bring the convenience of grocery delivery from Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market to even more Prime members, now reaching customers in more than 5,000 cities and towns,” said Stephenie Landry, Vice President of Grocery. “I’m thrilled to offer customers Key In-Garage Grocery Delivery, and believe this expansion illustrates our commitment to continually innovate to make the experience of ordering groceries online even better for customers.”
