Amazon may not be delivering by drone (yet), but local Prime subscribers could soon get packages within just a few hours.
The Tampa Bay Business Journal reports the online retailer appears to be gearing up to offer Prime Now, which offers fast delivery of certain purchases, in the Tampa Bay area.
According to the Business Journal, Amazon has leased about 30,000 square feet of warehouse space for the service. It also reports that orientation for new employees is underway in the space.
Prime Now’s website says the service is available for more than 25,000 items, including electronics and groceries, seven days a week. In some cities, the service can include restaurants and local stores.
Customers in more than 20 cities have access to Prime Now, including Atlanta, Austin, Chicago and parts of New York City.
