Amazon has today announced that it has expanded the number of London postcodes that are now eligible for one-hour delivery using the new Amazon Prime Now service.
One-hour Amazon Prime Now delivery slots are now available to customers located in Merton, Wandsworth and Sutton with Amazon Two-hour delivery slots available in Kingston, Sunbury and Croydon.
The new locations within London for one-hour delivery follow on from the rollout of the service in Wimbledon back in June of this year. Amazon explains a little more :
The number of postcodes eligible for one-hour delivery has increased five-fold and the number of postcodes eligible for a two-hour delivery window has almost trebled since the first day of the service in June 2015.
Londoners can choose from thousands of everyday items such as toilet paper, batteries and toothpaste, to last minute party essentials such as beer, snacks and fizzy drinks as well as other popular items like games consoles, gadgets and gifts, delivered right to their door in an hour or less.
The fastest London Prime Now delivery to date was a NETGEAR Wi-Fi Range Extender which was ordered at 10:32am, shipped from Amazon’s Bow delivery station and delivered at 10:44am to a postcode in Canary Wharf.
In August, one-hour delivery expanded into Birmingham, Amazon’s second UK Prime Now city where customers now have access to more than 20,000 products including a new range of chilled and frozen items such as Chicago Town pizzas, Birds Eye fish fingers and Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream.
