NEW YORK — Amazon.com Inc. announced it had lowered prices on holiday favorites and other popular items at Whole Foods Market and was offering even greater discounts for Prime members.
Whole Foods shoppers can buy organic turkeys for $3.49 per pound, while the price of antibiotic-free turkeys was cut to $2.49 per pound. For Prime members, those deals are $2.99 per pound and $1.99 per pound, respectively.
“These are the latest new, lower prices in our ongoing integration and innovation with Amazon, and we’re just getting started,” said John Mackey, Whole Foods Market cofounder and chief executive officer. “We’ll continue to work closely together to ensure we’re consistently surprising and delighting our customers while moving toward our goal of reaching more people with Whole Foods Market’s high-quality, natural and organic food.”
The deals announced November 15 feature reduced prices for items including value packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts, raw peeled shrimp, broccoli, salad mixes and russet potatoes. Prices were also reduced on items from such suppliers as Pacific Foods, Tom’s of Maine and Organic Valley.
The deals are good for in-store shopping only and do not apply to deliveries. To get the discount, Prime members must bring in a coupon that Amazon posted online.
