Just over two months after finalizing its purchase of retailer Whole Foods Market, online behemoth Amazon announced it was ending fresh grocery delivery in some cities, according to a media report.
Customers in suburban Pennsylvania and New Jersey received messages that their AmazonFresh deliveries would stop after Nov. 30, according to a Reuters story. Some customers in California, New York and Maryland posted messages on Twitter saying they also would lose the service, according to the story.
An Amazon spokesperson said the AmazonFresh service reductions were unrelated to the Whole Foods purchase, which became official Aug. 28, according to the story.
AmazonFresh was launched over a decade ago but has yet to make a major dent in the U.S. grocery market, according to the story.
