LONDON - 16th November  2016 - Amazon today announced its Prime customers in selected postcodes in  London and Hertfordshire are now able to choose from thousands of additional  grocery items sourced from Morrisons stores for delivery in under 60  minutes.

In addition to the Amazon  selection of more than 15,000 items, customers using the Amazon Prime Now app  can now browse products from Morrisons, John  Bell & Croyden, and Spirited Wines stores. Prime members can choose delivery within one hour of ordering for  £6.99, or delivery within a choice of two-hour, same-day delivery slots at no  extra charge between 8am and 10pm.

“We are delighted to welcome Morrisons' increased selection to the Prime Now app, enabling us to grow the  selection of items available to our Prime customers for one hour delivery,” said Mariangela Marseglia, Director for Prime Now EU."Morrisons store selection is in addition to existing local  stores available on Prime Now - John Bell & Croyden and Spirited Wines -  helping us to provide more than 10,000 additional items to customers for  ultra-fast delivery, and we look forward to adding more stores and reaching  more customers in the future."

All Prime members can immediately  download the Prime Now app, available on iOS and Android devices, to find  eligible delivery postcodes and request notification when the service is  available in their area.
