Following the launch of Amazon Prime Now in Newcastle in November 2015, local shoppers have been taking advantage of the ultra-fast delivery service to stock up on sweet treats, convenience food and kitchen essentials, with many items being delivered within one hour of the order being placed using Prime Now.

Newcastle shoppers have been using the Amazon Prime Now mobile app to order Pepsi, gadgets, pizza, bread, butter and other treats and kitchen cupboard essentials. The gadgets, soft drinks and more are among some of the 15,000 items available to customers in selected postcodes in Newcastle, Gateshead, Jesmond and High Heaton.

Newcastle Prime members in selected postcodes can choose same-day, two-hour delivery or get delivery within one of ordering for a £6.99 fee. Delivery is available seven days a week, morning until night.

Customers can choose from thousands of items, including essentials such as nappies, chocolate and fresh milk, as well as other popular items like games consoles and sports equipment — all via a simple and easy-to-use mobile app.
