Amazon Pantry, the online grocery store by e-commerce site Amazon has now been expanded to Indian cities including Mumbai, Bengaluru, Mysuru, Delhi, Gurgaon, Pune, and Faridabad. The store was first launched as a pilot in Hyderabad in July earlier this year. The specialized store promises next-day delivery of grocery and household items.
One can shop products by filling a virtual box of up to 15kg. The service is also available to non-Prime members at a delivery charge of Rs 20 per box.
As of now, products are being offered in seven categories — Cooking Essentials, Snacks & Beverages, Baby Care & Baby Food, Household supplies and Pets, Bath and Hair Care, Skin Care and Deodrants, and Themed Boxes. To order supplies, head to Amazon Pantry in the categories list and add products. As you keep adding products, the virtual box will show you how much more weight you can add.
For households with a fixed grocery order, AmazonPantry has a section labeled Past Orders, which allows one to repeat the purchase without having to go through the products’ list all over again. Currently, Amazon Pantry has launch offers where it is offering five percent discount on the purchase of products worth Rs 1,000 and 10 percent discount on the purchase of products worth Rs 2,000. It is further offering an additional 10 percent back as Amazon Pay balance.
Other than the cities mentioned Amazon plans to expand its business all across India. So yes Amazon will be seen giving competition to a lot of online grocery delivering sites.
