Amazon pop-up to open at metro Detroit Whole Foods Market store

The online retailer has also been expanding its brick-and-mortar presence: It recently opened shops inside some Kohl's department stores and it has opened a dozen brick-and-mortar bookstores.

In addition to getting to know Alexa and test-driving some of Amazon's best-selling devices, Whole Foods customers will get a head start on their holiday gifting by taking advantage of upcoming Black Friday deals.

While many Whole Foods began stocking the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot immediately after its acquisition by Amazon in August, the grocery brand announced plans to expand the selection of products on Thursday.


Shoppers at Whole Foods stores will soon be able to pick up tablets and other electronic devices while they grab their groceries. According to a Whole Foods Market spokeswoman, pop-up stores will land inside stores in Oakland, Cupertino, San Mateo, Los Altos, Redwood City, San Jose, Campbell and Palo Alto.

Having acquired Whole Foods in a deal worth $13.7bn, announced back in June, Amazon will now take advantage of the brand's numerous stores across the U.S. throughout the holiday season by rolling out seasonal pop-up shops. The discounts vary, and include $30 off the Echo Plus, Kindle Paperwhite, and Fire HD 8 tablet.

Whole Foods Stores has gotten a makeover with installation of lockers from Amazon.
