Amazon has entered the grocery delivery business with a new service called Amazon Pantry. A pantry is a small room in a house for food, plates and cutlery. Amazon will provide a next-day delivery service for groceries. This will be competition for supermarkets. Amazon customers can choose from more than 4,000 goods, from food to health and beauty products. A new service called Amazon Fresh will sell fresh fruit and vegetables from next year.

Shoppers may not rush to use the new grocery delivery service. It costs $4.50 for the first 20kg. Customers must be members of Amazon's express service Amazon Prime. This costs $120 a year. Amazon said Pantry would be very convenient. It will, "take the heavy lifting out of [refilling] the basics and store cupboard essentials that people need every day." It added it is always looking for ways to save customers time and money.
