Ordering books from Amazon for the holidays? Procrastinators, take note.
The cash-short United States Postal Service has struck a deal with the online retailer to deliver the company’s packages on Sundays — a first for both. The deal gives the Postal Service, which lost nearly $16 billion last year, a chance to boost its business. The Postal Service said it expected to make more deals with other merchants, and carve out a larger role in the $186 billion e-commerce market. This holiday shopping season, Sunday Amazon delivery will be limited to the LA and New York metro areas, then expand to other cities in 2014.
