October 06, 2015: Amazon Logistics has expanded its one-hour Prime Now delivery service five-fold following the opening of a new Amazon delivery facility in the south London district of Wimbledon.
The Prime Now service operates from 0800 to midnight seven days a week and the one-hour window is now available in London's Merton, Wandsworth and Sutton districts while the two-hour service covers Kingston, Sunbury and Croydon.
"Millions more Londoners can now enjoy ultra-fast delivery," said Christopher North, managing director of Amazon UK. "The service is proving very popular in the capital and we've seen high demand on everything from essentials like bottled water, coffee and nappies to the latest must-have popular items like games consoles, toys and sports equipment – all of which are available for delivery in less than 60 minutes."
In August, one-hour delivery expanded in Birmingham, Amazon's second UK Prime Now city, where customers now have access to more than 20,000 products.
Amazon Logistics is supported by independent local, regional and national delivery companies across the UK to deliver parcels seven days a week.
