Today's morning snow didn't slow down the crew at the Amazon Prime Now hub in Denver.
Amazon offers an "Amazon Prime Now" application for Prime members, which allows people in select cities to order items through the app and receive it in two hours. "They are spread out throughout the facility, and this is really more efficient for us to fill an order", said Law.
All of the items are broken down into small cubes broken down by rows built with intricate labels.
Those who aren't signed-up to Amazon Prime will have to pay £6.99 per delivery. "But behind the scenes it makes sense to develop as many efficiencies as possible".
At the same time, Landry appeared to throw cold water on the idea that this consolidation in leadership might signal Amazon's plans to fold the Fresh business into Prime Now or vice versa - an idea that floated around grocery industry circles after Amazon recently scaled back its Amazon Fresh business in some markets.

"This is our busiest week", Lynsey Kehril, Amazon spokeswoman, said about the week leading up to Christmas Day.

Amazon also offers locally made products from Austin through this service.
