The latest news on everything Amazon  

Amazon is growing Whole Foods’ footprint in order to expose more grocery shoppers to the store and two-hour delivery via Prime Now. As it expands, some new Whole Foods locations will account for delivery and pickup logistics with a larger square footage (about 45,000 square feet), which Amazon wants integrated at all 475 U.S. locations.

Kroger also announced a partnership with Microsoft to open two tech-driven grocery stores in Washington and Ohio, following in the footsteps of Walmart.
