Amazon announced that their $13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods Market will be finalized on Monday, and customers will be able to see lower prices right away.

Amazon and Whole Foods issued a joint statement on Thursday.

“The two companies will together pursue the vision of making Whole Foods Market’s high-quality, natural and organic food affordable for everyone,” they said in a statement. “Whole Foods Market will offer lower prices starting Monday on a selection of best-selling grocery staples across its stores, with more to come.”

The internet retailer said that it will lower prices at Whole Foods stores and will offer special discounts and benefits to Amazon Prime members.

"Whole Foods Market will offer lower prices starting Monday on a selection of best-selling grocery staples across its stores, with more to come," the company said in a statement.

Bananas, eggs, organic avocados, rotisserie chicken, and organic apples are among the food items that will be cheaper starting next week.

"Everybody should be able to eat Whole Foods Market quality -- we will lower prices without compromising Whole Foods Market's long-held commitment to the highest standards," Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon Worldwide Consumer, said in a statement.

Amazon and Whole Foods did not say in its joint statement how much those prices would be reduced.

Some people are happy about the news.
