Amazon announced that it has added over 4,000 new items to its Prime Now same-day service.

With Prime Now, Prime customers can get free two-hour delivery and $7.99 one-hour delivery.

Prime Now is currently offered to Prime members in Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Manhattan, Miami, Minneapolis, Nashville, Orange County, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, Seattle and Richmond.

Some of these locations feature deliveries from local restaurants and stores. In fact, Amazon also announced today that Chicago is getting local store delivery from Plum Market, Sprinkles Cupcakes, and My Fit Foods.

“Prime Now has been so popular with Chicago Prime members that we are excited to expand our superfast delivery benefits to include groceries and treats from favorite local stores Plum Market, Sprinkles Cupcakes, and My Fit Foods,” said Stephenie Landry, Director of Prime Now. “There are times when you can’t make it to the store and there are times when you simply don’t want to go, especially now as customers are busy preparing for the holidays.”

In less than a year, Prime has grown from one location to 20 metropolitan areas in the U.S., and will likely grow much more in the coming year.
