Amazon Expands Delivery
Say goodbye to the never-ending list of weekend errands and welcome back your real day of rest — Amazon is expanding its Sunday delivery service to Houston.
The world's largest online retailer has announced it is extending Sunday delivery to 15 cities, including six in Texas (Austin, College Station, Dallas, San Antonio and Waco, in addition to H-Town). The Amazon upgrade is available to customers at no extra charge.
The most common items delivered on Sunday include baby supplies such as newborn apparel, books and toys.
What started as a test drive in New York and LA this past November has proven so successful and worthy of development after millions of successful Sunday deliveries that is has been expanded, company officials said.
"The most common items delivered on Sunday include baby supplies such as newborn apparel, books and toys — Sunday delivery is clearly crossing errands off the weekend to-do list," Amazon's vice president of North America operations Mike Roth told the Associated Press.
In addition to its online grocery delivery amenity, Prime Pantry, and its video streaming program, Amazon Fire, Amazon is hoping to attract new customers with the Sunday delivery service. If only the company would favor Houston as much as it does Dallas and give us its same day delivery option — now that would be a game changer.
