Amazon launches a one hour delivery service in New York

The new service has been launched in selected areas of Manhattan and is available from 6 am to midnight, seven days a week. Two-hour delivery is free and one-hour delivery is available for $7.99.

A section within Amazon’s new building on the city’s 34th Street will serve as a hub for delivery of Prime Now orders.

Dave Clark, Amazon’s senior vice president of worldwide operations, said: “There are times when you can’t make it to the store and other times when you simply don’t want to go. There are so many reasons to skip the trip and now Prime members in Manhattan can get the items they need delivered in an hour or less.

“We’ve long felt that Amazon Prime is the best deal in the history of shopping and now it has gotten even better. Prime members in Manhattan are going to love this service and we cannot wait to roll out Prime Now to additional cities in 2015.”
