So here’s how it works: If an item you want is eligible on Amazon, they’ll let you know if it’s available for same day pickup at their new location in Cincinnati (Clifton Heights to be exact).

Once it arrives you get a message, click the link, a locker with your item opens.

That’s pretty neat, but I struggle: is Amazon the new Walmart, displacing more local businesses? I hope something meta comes of this experiment, and many other retailers will hop on the train. Imagine a site that searches all local small businesses and lets you know where you can do just that.
