Amazon Prime Now: The Ultimate Destination for Thanksgiving Prep

In the days leading up to Thanksgiving, Amazon Prime Now is the ultimate convenience for customers looking to skip the line at the busy store and receive all of their Turkey Day items right to their door with one and two-hour delivery. This year, Prime Now will be operating on Thanksgiving Day until 8 p.m. to make sure customers can easily get their last-minute ingredients, décor or even board games while still spending quality time with friends and family during the holiday.
