“The store offers consistently low prices for all, and free, same-day delivery and pick-up for Prime members,” according to the release. “We’ve also introduced new ways to make grocery shopping more convenient, including the Amazon Dash Cart, which enables customers to skip the checkout line, and new Alexa features to help customers manage their shopping lists and better navigate our aisles.”

Amazon Fresh Porter Ranch is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. with the 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. hour being reserved for “customers who are 60 years and older, those with disabilities and those whom the C.D.C. defines as high risk.” The 30,000-square-foot grocery store retails national brands, produce, meat, and seafood, as well as a range of prepared foods, made fresh in-store every day — from fresh-baked bread and made-to-order pizzas, to rotisserie chickens and hot sandwiches like the brisket panini. Also available are 365 by Whole Foods Market organics items.

In an effort to support the immediate community, Amazon Fresh Porter Ranch even ahead of opening has donated over 185,000 pounds of food (equivalent to over 155,000 meals). “We’re proud to support the community by creating hundreds of high-quality local jobs and by donating surplus food from the Amazon Fresh store to local food banks,” according to the release.
