Amazon Prime Will Soon Bring Booze to Certain Cities in Under an Hour
Seattle is the first city with Prime Now where users will be able to order alcohol for extra-speedy delivery from 8 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. Members of the $99 service will be able to get their items delivered for no charge if they choose two hour delivery; one hour delivery costs $7.99.
The on-demand booze represents a new market for Amazon. There's already a "pantry" feature called Amazon Fresh that allows users to order grocery staples for delivery (at a membership cost of $299 a year), but now it looks like Amazon wants to compete with meal-delivery services like Postmates and Grubhub.
