The online giant Amazon has entered the grocery delivery business in the UK. It has a new service called Amazon Pantry. A pantry is a small room in a house where people put food, plates and cutlery. Amazon will provide customers with a next-day delivery service of groceries. This will mean a lot of competition for the UK's supermarkets. Amazon Pantry customers can select from more than 4,000 goods, from food and drinks to health and beauty products. A new service called Amazon Fresh will sell fresh fruit and vegetables. It is in the planning stage and will be available later.

Shoppers may not rush to use Amazon's new grocery delivery service. There is a charge of $4.50 for the first 20kg. Also, customers must already be members of Amazon's express delivery service Amazon Prime, which costs $120 a year. An Amazon Pantry spokeswoman said people would like the convenience of the service. She said it would, "take the heavy lifting out of [refilling] the basics and store cupboard essentials that people need every day." She added: "We are always looking to innovate on behalf of our customers and find ways to save them time and money."
