NEW YORK (AP) — Amazon is adding another feature to its Prime membership program: groceries. Members can now fill a box with groceries weighing up to 45 pounds — and have it shipped to them for $5.99.

The service is called Prime Pantry — and features a wider selection of items you can get in a grocery store, as well as bulk items you might buy online or at a warehouse store.

As you shop, the Prime Pantry site shows you how much space each item takes up in the grocery box — and how much room is left. The items are shipped within one to four business days.

Recently, Amazon added a video streaming service to the mix, even as it increased its annual membership price to $99 from $79.
