DENVER — Amazon Prime customers in Denver now have the opportunity to have packages rushed to them in just one hour for a fee, along with free two hour shipping as Amazon Prime Now debuts in the bustling city. 

Amazon is debuting the service on Thursday, just days after announcing a new Amazon Robotics facility that will bring 1,500 jobs to Thornton.

In Denver, prime customers will be afforded the opportunity to have essential products and even fresh groceries delivered to them quickly through the Prime Now service. One-hour deliveries will cost $8 and two-hour deliveries will be included in Amazon Prime memberships. 

Sprouts Farmers Market has partnered with Amazon to offer their seasonal and organic produce, along with fresh meat, seafood, baked goods and more. 

"Customers in Denver can enjoy the convenience of superfast delivery of tens of thousands of items from milk, paper towels and Amazon devices to groceries from Sprouts Farmers Market delivered right to their door with free two-hour delivery," Simoina Vasen, Prime Now's director, said. 

The service is available now in select zip codes at or through the Prime Now app.
