Along with significant price cuts, customers may be startled to see a certain non-grocery item the next time they walk into Whole Foods: the Amazon Echo.
At least some Whole Foods locations began selling the Echo on Monday. A Brooklyn location had the Echo front and center as the “pick of the season.”
The Echo was discounted from $US179.99 to $US99.99 at the Gowanus Whole Foods store. The Echo Dot was discounted from $US49.99 to $US44.99.
We reached out to Amazon to see if all Whole Foods would begin selling the Echo and will update the post when we get more information.
“This is just the beginning — Amazon and Whole Foods Market plan to offer more in-store benefits and lower prices for customers over time as the two companies integrate logistics and point-of-sale and merchandising systems,” Amazon and Whole Foods said in a press release last Thursday.
