Amazon ramps up Prime Now coverage in LondonOTHER NEW
Amazon has announced that it has ramped up its Prime Now coverage in London – with one-hour delivery now available to customers in Merton, Wandsworth and Sutton, and two-hour delivery windows available in Kingston, Sunbury and Croydon.
In a statement issued today (6 October), Amazon said: “Following the opening of a new Amazon delivery station in Wimbledon, the number of postcodes eligible for one-hour delivery has increased five-fold and the number of postcodes eligible for a two-hour delivery window has almost trebled since the first day of the service in June 2015.”
“Millions more Londoners can now enjoy ultra-fast delivery,” said Christopher North, Managing Director of Amazon.co.uk. “The service is proving very popular in the capital and we’ve seen high demand on everything from essentials like bottled water, coffee and nappies to the latest must-have popular items like games consoles, toys and sports equipment – all of which are available for delivery in less than 60 minutes.”
The Prime Now service is available from 8 am to midnight, seven days a week and deliveries are made from Amazon buildings in Bow, East London and Wimbledon in South-West London.
In August, one-hour delivery expanded into Birmingham, Amazon’s second UK Prime Now city where customers now have access to more than 20,000 products including a new range of chilled and frozen items such as Chicago Town pizzas, Birds Eye fish fingers and Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream.
Amazon added that it will “continue to expand Prime Now across further UK cities before the end of the year”.
