Amazon to Start Selling Technology Products in Whole Foods at Black Friday Prices

Amazon.com Inc. is going to start selling technology products in Whole Foods locations at discounted prices.  The deals are not limited are to just Thanksgiving related food items but popular technology products.

Amazon announced that it will offer the discounted deals on some of its products for the entire week before Thanksgiving.  The discounted items will be available at more than 100 of its Whole Foods Market locations.

The discounted products include the following:

$10 off the Echo Dot

$20 off the newest Amazon Echo

$30 off the Echo Plus

$30 off Kindle Paperwhite

$20 off the new Amazon Cloud Cam

$20 off the Fire 7 tablet

$30 off the Fire HD 8 tablet

Further product details are available at www.amazon.com.

These technology products may not be what one normally expects to see at a Whole Foods, but shouldn’t be a surprise since Amazon’s recent acquisition of Whole Foods.  The brick and mortar retail channel will also allow customers to touch and feel these Amazon products before they make a purchase.  It would be helpful if these items could be demo’d too!

Amazon will also unveil “Amazon Pop-Up” stores at Whole Foods locations in Rochester Hills, Michigan, and Chicago on Nov. 13; in Davie, Florida and Pasadena, Calif., Nov. 14; and in Denver Nov. 15. The staffed pop-up shops at Whole Foods stores will allow grocery shoppers to play around with Amazon devices and get more information about services including Amazon Prime.  Keep an eye out for more “Amazon Pop-Up” stores in your area.

Amazon has not yet made Black Friday or Cyber Monday plans for its online retail business public. So it’s not clear if the deals offered at Whole Foods will also be offered online at Amazon.com.
