These pop up shops will interest many potential buyers as they will be able to test and try out the products before actually buying them online on the Amazon website.

This holiday season, you could step into a Whole Foods for some organic bananas and step out with a couple of Echo speakers instead.

Amazon announced the plans, saying that Whole Foods is offering the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Kindle ereaders and Fire tablets, plus the Fire TV, at more than 100 of the Market stores. It's not yet known if these deals will also be available online.

Having acquired Whole Foods in a deal worth $13.7bn, announced back in June, Amazon will now take advantage of the brand's numerous stores across the U.S. throughout the holiday season by rolling out seasonal pop-up shops. Additionally, Amazon pop-up shops will appear at five Whole Foods locations in the next week. The new Echo Plus will get a $30 discount, and various Kindle models will also see price cuts of up to $30.

With Amazon now the owner of the Whole Foods healthy-eating grocery chain, it should come as no surprise that it'd start putting its products on the shelves next to desiccated fruit and quinoa parcels.
