Groceries can now be delivered to you door nearly as fast as a pizza. Amazon Fresh is rolling out one- and two-hour delivery in Columbus.

Included with an Amazon Prime membership, Amazon Fresh provides shoppers with tens of thousands of Amazon items that are eligible for one- and two- hour delivery, from produce and groceries, to Amazon devices, electronics, health and personal care, home & kitchen, toys and more.

Amazon customers who have already utilized grocery delivery though Whole Foods Market can start using the Amazon Fresh delivery service today. First-timers have to request an invitation to shop Amazon Fresh or Whole Foods Market delivery at www.amazon.com/grocery, and will be notified when they can start shopping.

According to Amazon’s website, “In order to provide a great service to each customer, Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market are available by invitation only at this time. When you request an invitation to both Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market, invitations will be sent separately.”

Two-hour delivery on orders of more than $35 is free. There’s a $4.99 fee for one-hour delivery.

Where exactly those delivery drivers park may be changing, thanks to this week’s launch of curbFlow in Columbus. The new app-based service creates designated delivery zones from Downtown through campus meant to be utilized by delivery drivers from Amazon and UPS to Uber eats and everything in between.
