Amazon is setting foot in San Antonio with a “sortation center” on the West Side that will shorten delivery times and enable Sunday delivery for city residents.
The facility is Amazon’s first operations facility in San Antonio, company spokeswoman Ashley Robinson said. It will be used to sort packages by ZIP code from Amazon fulfillment centers, such as its one in Schertz and one under construction in San Marcos.

That's great news for S.A. They will have no problem filling spots/jobs at $11.00 an hour. Also, they are coming closer into S.A. partly because of me; I buy mostly everything on Amazon with my prime free shipping.
I love Amazon!!

Shorter delivery time would be welcome.

One thing I've noticed, is even with a Prime membership, and the free 2-day shipping upgrade, you factor in a couple of days to process the order, then a weekend comes along, then two days for the actual delivery -- you're sometimes looking at a week to get your stuff.

I have received several Sunday deliveries already. Have no idea why some items do and others don't get delivered on Sunday, but that has been occurring for a while now here in SA.

I get Sunday deliveries, too. In the Dallas area, they offer same day delivery in certain zip codes, but I moved before I could take advantage of that.

When I couldn't find a new carburetor for my riding mower that is over ten years old, the only place I could find it (in new condition) was Amazon! I am liking Amazon more and more but you do have to watch the prices there.

Apparently, weekend deliveries are at the carrier's discretion, but they aren't "Business Days", and don't count as delivery days. The "Guaranteed Delivery Date & Time" you are given is a worst-case scenario, and worst case is usually what I have been getting.

Same-day with Amazon is called 'Amazon Prime Now' and it's coming soon

Until then, I'll bide my time using Burpy for groceries

hahahahahahaha sunday deliveries!

i have a hard enough time NOW getting the lazy ass USPS guy to deliver on sunday. had to delay a customers order til today because of that crap. had a hard drive and enclosure scheduled for sunday delivery. NOPE!
'

'a delivery attempt was made but the business was closed'

this only started happening when USPS put some lazy skinny college kid on my route. before, it was a fairly attractive, early 30s woman who was fantastic at her job.

that reminds me, i need to go to USPS and complain AGAIN about this.
