USPS to Offer Next Day Sunday Delivery for Holidays

In an effort to get a leg up in the so-called package wars, the U.S. Postal Service will be offering next-day Sunday delivery this holiday season.  According to the Associated Press, that means consumers could place  online orders from participating retailers by a cutoff time on Saturday  and the Postal Service would deliver it the following day. 

The Postal  Service has not yet announced which stores may sign up for this pilot  program, but the cheap, next-day service is something that e-commerce  retailers struggle to provide--particularly during their most  competitive season. The postal service program will be available in 20  major U.S. cities. Walmart says it is also considering the option.
