Amazon introduced Prime Now into Manchester in December 2015 having launched
into London, Birmingham and Newcastle earlier in the year. 1 of the fastest
Amazon Prime Now deliveries in the UK to date was Call of Duty: Black Ops III
(PS4) which was ordered at 10:06am, shipped from Amazon's Erdington delivery
station in Birmingham and delivered at 10:21am to a postcode in Castle Vale.
Prime Now customers also have access to a range of chilled and
frozen items from:- yogurts, bread, fresh juices and eggs to pizzas, fish
fingers and ice cream. The most popular Prime Now purchase of 2015 was the Fire
TV Stick; closely followed by bottled water, Pepsi Max and Terry's Chocolate
Orange. FIFA 16 (PS4) has proved the most commonly purchased video game since
Prime Now launched in the UK in June 2015.
Prime Now is made available through Amazon Logistics which empowers independent
local, regional and national delivery companies across the UK to deliver Amazon
parcels to customers 7 days a week. Deliveries will be made from the Amazon
Logistics' delivery station in Speke, Liverpool.
All Prime members can immediately download the Prime Now app, available on iOS
and Android devices, to find eligible delivery postcodes and request
notification when the service is available in their area. But will this
have a major impact on small businesses locally? Already as you have read,
Tescos are suffering from the online trade, via the likes of Amazon. Is this
going to close down our corner shops? Please email us your views and thoughts

of this move by the US based form Amazon.
