In the United States, same-day delivery service is something of a rarity. The sheer size of US cities and the distance between warehouse and customer means that for many companies, it’s simply not practical to try and offer that guarantee.
Newegg, however, is looking to change this in America’s most sprawled city. Starting now, Newegg customers that live within 50 miles of Newegg’s warehouse in Metro Los Angeles can receive their goods by the end of the day if the purchase is made before 11 AM. Newegg says the service costs a flat fee $19.99.
Right now the service is in testing phase, and if it’s successful in LA Newegg plans to expand its availability to Indianapolis, Edison (New Jersey) and Memphis.
