Seattle, USA – April 15, 2020: Late in the day an Amazon Prime delivery van parked by a stay safe sign at the Showbox at the height of the Coronavirus city wide shutdown.

In some cities, Amazon will now deliver groceries straight to your garage.

Amazons new Key In-Garage Grocery Delivery program allows eligible Amazon Prime members to receive groceries stored securely in their garages. Groceries come from Amazon-owned Whole Foods or Amazon Fresh.

The grocery program is available in select areas of Seattle, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and Amazon plans to expand it to other cities.

This program is the latest in Amazon’s increase in contactless delivery capabilities amid the coronavirus pandemic. Amazon is expanding its garage package delivery service, which launched in 2019, to more than 4,000 cities in the United States.

To receive groceries and packages through this program, Prime members must have the Key by Amazon app and a myQ smart garage door opener or the myQ hub installed, which allows users to monitor their garage doors.

Customers tell us they appreciate the convenience and peace of mind that in-garage delivery offers, and were happy to expand the service to thousands of additional cities, says Pete Gerstberger, head of Key by Amazon.
