U.S. Postal Service could deliver groceries, too

| Monday, September 29, 2014

The United States Postal Service wants to deliver a bottle of cold milk and a carton of eggs to your doorstep and do it in the wee hours of the morning while you sleep. According to the Washington Post, the agency filed a proposal with the Postal Regulatory Commission last week asking federal regulators to allow it to expand a grocery delivery pilot program it has going in San Francisco to other cities.

USPS says the way it would work is that the customer would order groceries through Amazon. Then postal workers wearing lighted hats would place insulated tote bags on your porch between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. and leave without ringing the doorbell. 

The postal service figures a two-year test in various cities could bring in $20 million.
