The number of Amazon Prime members who tried grocery delivery for the first time this holiday season increased by more than 80%, Amazon announced Dec. 26. Prime members ordered more than double the number of grocery items this holiday season compared to last year.
Amazon announced that it delivered tens of millions grocery items from Whole Foods Market and Amazon Fresh this holiday season.
Prime members were committed to healthy grocery shopping throughout the holiday season, the company revealed. Best-selling items for grocery delivery included avocados, spinach, blueberries and pears, among other items.
“This holiday season has been better than ever thanks to our customers and employees all around the world,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO.
More people tried Prime this holiday season than any previous year – in fact, in one week alone, more than 5 million new customers started Prime free trials or began paid memberships worldwide.
In 2019, Amazon’s dedicated last-mile delivery network delivered over 3.5 billion customer packages globally.
This holiday season, the number of items that were delivered with Prime Free One-Day and Prime Free Same-Day Delivery nearly quadrupled compared to the same time period last holiday season, making this Amazon’s fastest holiday yet.
