Amazon Kicks out Instacart

Notice the buzz at your local WFM recently? Any chance you might have got run over by a millennial jammin’ to Drake while picking up groceries in the (already packed) aisles?

Well, those days are soon over. According to a WFM professional, Instacart will not have all of the luxuries come February, 2019. With Amazon’s integration in the WFM retail stores, Amazon’s Prime Now service will win out in many shops.

Understanding is that those pesky “Insta-runners” will still be able to pick up kale, whey protein, and Amazon gift cards, but will loose their in-store registers and “prime” storage and customer pickup space.
