This summer's sale of Whole Foods to Amazon hasn't really lowered our yuppie grocery bill by much, but there is one upside: This week, Amazon launched a free two-hour grocery delivery service through Prime Now, available to Amazon Prime members in Austin, Cincinnati, Virginia Beach and, yes, Dallas.
Added bonus: booze.

"Prime customers can shop thousands of items across fresh and organic produce, bakery, dairy, meat and seafood, floral and everyday staples from Whole Foods Market available for free two-hour delivery," according to a press release. "Select alcohol is also available for delivery to customers. Prime members receive two-hour delivery for free and ultra-fast delivery within one hour for $7.99 on orders of $35 or more."
Amazon will eventually expand the service into other markets, but who cares about them — we need our sustainably farmed swordfish steaks, and we need them now. Or, like, in two hours.
Delivery through the Prime Now app or website is available from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Head to the website to see if your ZIP code is included.
