He said that while the move may eventually force grocery retailers to narrow the window of time to deliver goods, it does not mean customers will immediately rush into this service. The two-hour delivery window applies to Prime Now customers living in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Virginia Beach who order $35 or more worth of groceries from Whole Foods.

The Amazon Prime Now delivery service now covers Whole Foods groceries as well, with free two-hour deliveries.

The announcement is the latest in Amazon's integration of the Whole Foods Market chain of high-end organic supermarkets, which it agreed to buy in June for $13.7 billion.

But 21st-century feminists should not be dissuaded, she added, as there are " many parallels" with women's campaigns today . Her granddaughter said women needed to fight against the perception that they should not battle for equality.

CNBC reports Amazon is planning to expand the supermarket delivery offering across the USA this year. Prime members will have whatever their hearts desire free of delivery charges within two hours of placing their orders. Mehta argued that Amazon somehow sent a signal to the whole retail landscape when it made a decision to buy Whole Foods.

Amazon began selling Whole Foods' 365 brand products on its site last fall, and racked up $10 million in sales, according to One Click Retail. Amazon also realigned its Prime Now and Amazon Fresh divisions under the leadership of Landry at the end of 2017.

Hugh Fletcher, global head of consultancy and innovation at ecommerce consultancy Salmon, added: "Ever since Amazon introduced Amazon Fresh, it has had its sights firmly set on the grocery market".

Another challenge for Amazon: It is targeting suburban areas in middle America instead of large coastal cities like Boston and NY, where grocery delivery is already a way of life for millions. Walmart, the country's largest grocer, has aggressively expanded its buy-online-pick-up-in-store option throughout the country and is eyeing same-day deliveries in NY. Two-hour delivery is free for all Prime members with orders of $35 or more, and customers can pay an extra $7.99 to have their items delivered within one hour.

Amazon has been working to integrate with Whole Foods ever since it acquired the grocery giant previous year, including slashing prices and selling its Echo and Echo Dot devices in stores.

Not just the Sena and TDP, some of the BJP's allies in Bihar have also taken to complain that their concerns are being neglected. On 23 January, Thackeray had declared that the Sena, another NDA constituent, would fight the next round of elections alone.

Landry said,"They will pick the items, put them in appropriate packaging to maintain the chill chain and pack them".
