Prime Day prep: Here’s how to get ready for Amazon Prime Day
Amazon acquired the Whole Foods chain for $13.7 billion in August 2017 with a “vision of making Whole Foods Market’s high-quality, natural and organic food affordable for everyone,” the companies said at the time.
Prices were cut on the first day on “best-selling grocery staples,” including fruit, dairy and meats.
In April, Whole Foods and Amazon announced they were cutting prices on hundreds of items and doubling the number of exclusive weekly Prime member deals.
Stephenie Landry, vice president of Amazon Retail, said in a statement that Prime members have saved more than $250 million in exclusive deals at Whole Foods.
“Now we’re offering even more savings in celebration of Prime Day this year, adding three times the number of Prime Member deals to this year’s celebration,” Landry said.
