After a year of false starts, lawsuits and unanswered questions, Amazon Fresh redesigns two of its Chicago-area stores and offers delivery to non-Prime members.

The virtual healthcare marketplace was launched by the retail giant in November, giving customers access to clinicians and message-based consultations.

Meanwhile, in the nearby metro Miami city of Sunrise, Amazon is being sued by the landlord of a property where another Amazon Fresh was leased and never opened.

The e-commerce giant grew its market share during the Prime Day sale, capturing roughly two-fifths (42%) of consumer spending, making it the biggest Prime Day in the company’s history, according to a new Numerator report.

The e-commerce giant said the grocery job cuts, which focus on in-store "zone leads," are a move to restructure the staffing and operations at its 44 U.S. Amazon Fresh locations, according to the retailer and published reports.

The grocer, which released its annual sustainability report Tuesday, also said it diverted 72% of its stores’ food waste from landfills through its rigorous recycling and composting efforts.

The Amazon One devices are expected to be available at checkout lanes in 500-plus grocery stores by the end of the year.

Prime members worldwide purchased more than 375 million products with discounts totaling over $2.5 billion during the retail giant's mega-sale.
