While Amazon last week shared a list of products expected to be discounted on Monday, a trip to local Whole Foods stores indicate that the price cuts are already broader than announced .
Amazon had clearly wanted to emphasize how it was making organic groceries cheaper when it announced its list of price cuts last week.
Some stores were working last-minute to get their signage up, like the Whole Foods in SOMA, San Francisco, which still had the old prices showing this morning when it opened.
The company will also use the stores as “hubs” for this like ship-to-store e-commerce (like Walmart does today with its “local pickup” discount program); returns, and grocery delivery services.
The company has not yet announced how long before more in-store discounts roll out, but store staff was unaware of others in the works this week.
