Amazon has shut down its Prime Pantry service, one of its early tests at selling food online. Prime Pantry was a grocery and household essentials delivery service.
- Prime Pantry was launched in 2014, but never really took off. Amazon has since improved upon its grocery delivery service with the acquisition of Whole Foods.
- Today, Amazon's Amazon Fresh stores combined with its Whole Foods Market stores can give customers same-day delivery service for fresh produce and groceries for $119.99 per year.
- All of the products previously available under the Prime Pantry label were added to the Amazon main site.
- In 2020, Amazon had to temporarily suspend its Prime Pantry deliveries due to a high volume of orders.
