Watch out, Instacart: Whole Foods is coming.

In 14 cities - now expanded to include Boston, Baltimore and Philadelphia and Richmond - Prime members can now utilize "Ultrafast delivery".

In addition to qualifying for specific spotlight sales, Prime shoppers will receive another 10 percent off on hundreds of sale items in the store.


The online retail giant announced that it is expanding the free two-hour delivery of grocery products from Whole Foods Market to Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, and Richmond. At the end of your shopping trip, scan your code from the app for the savings. Thus far, according to Whole Foods officials, the no-fees delivery option has been well-received. "Today's announcement is another way that we are continuing to expand access to our high-quality products and locally-sourced favorites". And for those who just can't wait two whole hours for their $6 asparagus water to arrive, Whole Foods offers a quicker, one-hour delivery option for $7.99. It has also introduced a 10 percent discount on grocery purchases to Prime members in several states since the e-commerce giant purchased the grocery chain a year ago.

Prime Now delivery is available daily from 8 a.m.to 10 p.m.

In other news, Whole Foods said it plans to open a 42,000-square-foot store in Burbank, Calif., on June 20 and a 43,000-square-foot location in Kirkland, Wash., on August 16.
