Amazon expands same-day Prime delivery to 11 more cities
The new cities are Charlotte, Cincinnati, Fresno, Louisville, Milwaukee, Nashville, Raleigh, Richmond, Sacramento, Stockton and Tucson. Also, new areas in Los Angeles., San Diego, central New Jersey and the Dallas metroplex are being added to the network, the company said in a press release.
Prime members pay $99 a year for a membership that includes shipping perks and video streaming, among other advantages. The service is a key element of Amazon’s business model, because it keeps customers locked into its ecosystem.
- In a letter to shareholders released Tuesday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said the company wants “Prime to be such a good value, you’d be irresponsible not to be a member.”
