Amazon is planning to expand its delivery service

April 28, 2021: -Amazon is expanding its service that lets delivery people drop off groceries inside your garage.

On Tuesday, the company announced that the service is available for all Prime members now, delivering over 5,000 cities all around the U.S.

Until now, few Prime members could get Amazon Fresh orders and Whole Foods deliveries dropped off in their garage, but only if they are living in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle, or San Francisco.

The offering is a part of Amazon Key, the company’s array of services that allows delivery drivers to leave the packages in garages, homes, cars, and businesses.

Consumers have to purchase additional hardware to get packages or groceries dropped off inside their homes or garage.

In-home delivery requires a smart lock and a camera, whereas in-garage delivery requires an intelligent garage door opener. Amazon pitched these services to Prime members to keep their groceries or packages safe from weather, damage and theft.

The services also raised concerns around the prospect of giving a stranger access, a limited entry to your home or garage.

Other retailers have also experimented with the model, like Walmart, which began testing grocery deliveries to an innovative cooler on or near shoppers’ doorsteps in January.

Amazon is expanding in-garage grocery delivery as the Covid-19 pandemic has made more consumers order food and groceries online from their houses. The company’s online grocery sales tripled year over year in the second quarter of 2020 and continued to accelerate in the second half of the previous year.
