CNN Business | July 28, 2020
London (CNN Business)Amazon has started offering free grocery deliveries to Prime members in London and the surrounding area as it seeks to cash in on Britain's coronavirus-induced online shopping boom and take on stores such as Tesco, Sainsbury's and Ocado.
Amazon Fresh, the company's grocery delivery service, will offer same-day delivery in most areas on orders over $51.51 placed before 9 p.m. The minimum order value has also been lowered to $19.32.
The launch follows a move in October to eliminate fees on grocery deliveries for Prime members in the United States.
