There are now four Whole Foods stores in the state, including one on Maui and three on Oahu.
Amazon Prime members in Hawaii on Wednesday are scheduled to be eligible for special discounts at Whole Foods Market stores - such as $9-per-pound savings on sustainably caught yellowfin tuna steaks, Amazon and Whole Foods announced today. Amazon says that should include "hundreds" of items within the store, but obviously your experience is going to be more local. Customers also can see Prime offers via the Whole Foods app.

Amazon said that, to take advantage of the benefits, Prime customers can download the Whole Foods app, sign in with their Amazon account and then scan a code at checkout.
