    That store, according to Belus Capital Advisors CEO Brian Sozzi, is Macy’s (M). “I believe Macy’s will announce a major same-day delivery program within the next 12 months,” he says. “They’re already piloting it, I believe, in four markets and I think once they have the foundation, the technology behind it -- they’re already working with UPS (UPS) and Fed Ex (FDX) and I believe also Ebay (EBAY) to get the program off the ground

    I just read that too. The writer of that story is clueless about the delivery business.

    Not only that, but clueless about Macy's. Round here they cant even open loading docks to accept a delivery. Almost as bad as Walgreens or Walmart
  4. Everything sounds good on paper. but wait ,you need a reliable delivery system.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Good luck. There's a reason people started paying ups to deliver their packages over 100 years ago. It's more cost effective.

    We had a software update on our powerpads a while back that added a same day delivery function. Wonder if this is why. Either way, horrible idea.

    How about this. If you for whatever reason must have something from Macy's today, drive to Macy's and buy it. And look, no ridiculous same day shipping charge that costs more than the product!
