Amazon Prime Now Delivers to (a Bit of) Scotland

By Gary Cutlack on at

Amazon Prime members in Glasgow are the latest beneficiaries of the shopping giant's superfast delivery service, with Prime Now one-hour service slots now available across the city.

And it's not just a few select postcodes in the middle bit, either. People living in the outer areas of Motherwell, Kilmarnock and Cumbernauld are also able to have their shopping whizzed to them as if it's more important than other people's shopping, paying the usual £6.99 fee for the super-express one-hour slot, or having it come within two hours for free -- as long as you're an existing Prime subscriber.

In yet another local coup, initial Prime Now shoppers in Glasgow receive a free 2l bottle of sugar free Irn Bru alongside their first order. Yes really. And look, Amazon sent out a photographer to capture some bespoke pics of its bags being delivered live, just for Scotland:

Visual proof for those who doubt Scotland even exists outside of the news, or don't know anyone who's ever in so much of a hurry to have things delivered apart from pizzas.

Amazon says this latest launch means that over 30 per cent of the UK population are now able to order things via Prime Now.
