In competition with Amazon to be the best resource for online shoppers, eBay has decided to expand its same-day delivery service to Chicago this summer. The program, which was piloted in Northern California last year, is called eBay Now. It offers hand-delivery of goods from a list of stores like GNC, Target, Best Buy, Home Depot and Urban Outfitters within an hour of ordering.
According to the Tribune, eBay Now will be available in Chicago in the next few weeks.
