Whole Foods adds Amazon pop-up shops

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us and that means Black Friday deals will start popping up any day now. About 100 other stores will also have the devices available for sale.

The tech giant announced today that it will open pop-up stores at five Whole Foods locations next week.

Amazon acquired Whole Foods Market in August of this year.

Get ready to pick up a Fire TV stick with your organic granola: Amazon will use its newly acquired Whole Foods storefronts to sell Fire TV devices, Echo speakers and Kindle e-readers this holiday season, the company announced Friday.

Israeli PM Netanyahu Questioned in Graft Probe
Netanyahu was interviewed for four hours at his official residence in Jerusalem by police interrogators from the Lahav 433 unit. "There won't be anything because there wasn't anything", he wrote on Twitter after Thursday's questioning.

The pop-up in the Rochester Hills store at 2918 Walton Blvd. opens Monday and it's not yet known when it would close, Whole Foods spokeswoman Allison Phelps said in an email.

During the announcement, though much details were not disclosed, Amazon did promise that there was still "more to come" and customers who hold Amazon Prime memberships will be getting "special savings and in-store benefits". The discounts vary, and include $30 off the Echo Plus, Kindle Paperwhite, and Fire HD 8 tablet.

Amazon, not surprisingly, is positioning its smart speakers as a convenient way to get recipes and more for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
