To support this expansion of Prime Now, Amazon has established four Prime Now hubs in southern California to serve its Prime members with superfast delivery on tens of thousands of items including paper towels, chilled and frozen items like milk and ice cream, and televisions and Kindle devices.

In the next few days, Prime Now will also add deliveries from local Los Angeles stores such as Sprouts Farmers Market, Bristol Farms, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Fresh & Easy, Erewhon Organic Grocer and 99 Ranch Market.

“Customers love the convenience of getting items delivered right to their doors in under an hour,” said Stephenie Landry, director of Amazon’s Prime Now service. “The logistical expertise that we’ve developed since day one fuels Prime Now and we’re excited to expand one and two-hour delivery to Los Angeles and surrounding areas.”

Members of Amazon’s paid Prime loyalty service, which costs $99 per year, can download the Prime Now app and start shopping. In Los Angeles, Prime Now is available from 8 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Two-hour delivery is free and one-hour delivery is available for $7.99.

With the addition of Los Angeles, Prime Now operates in 13 cities worldwide.
