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

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

The deals include even the brand new Amazon Echo Plus.

It is also opening small, staffed shops in Whole Foods locations in Rochester Hills; Chicago; Davie, Fla.; Pasadena, Calif.; and Denver, according to a news release.

TechRadar will be digging out all the best offers come Black Friday weekend, so stay locked on our deals pages for some massive savings.

To recall, Amazon had announced it would cut prices at Whole Foods - which had acquired a reputation for requiring a "whole paycheck" - as soon as the acquisition was final.

Whole Foods and Amazon said they planned to promote several of the devices at $20 to $30 off, starting Thanksgiving week.

The pop-up stores are an expansion of Amazon's strategy of selling its first-party devices inside Whole Foods.

That gives Steve Kessel responsibility for Prime Now, Amazon's rapid-delivery operation, and AmazonFresh, its grocery-delivery arm, in addition to Whole Foods and Amazon's physical book and convenience stores, The Journal reported.

Amazon has 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.
