New leadership delivered to AmazonFresh, Whole Foods

  • Amazon said it will turn more than 100 of its Whole Foods Market stores into sales outposts for Amazon’s expanding line of electronics

With Amazon now the owner of the Whole Foods healthy-eating grocery chain, it should come as no surprise that it'd start putting its products on the shelves next to desiccated fruit and quinoa parcels.

This holiday season, you could step into a Whole Foods for some organic bananas and step out with a couple of Echo speakers instead. Whole Foods announced the Amazon pop-ups would also be launching in stores in Illinois, Michigan, Florida and southern California.

The online retailer has also been expanding its brick-and-mortar presence: It recently opened shops inside some Kohl's department stores and it has opened a dozen brick-and-mortar bookstores. These pop-ups will be available in a limited number of locations, though, and while that might have been Amazon's plan, the company might not be able to open them in all Whole Foods locations anyway.
