If going to the mall sounds like the worst idea ever, or if you need a last-minute outfit for an event on the same day, you're in luck. Amazon is now offering same-day Prime deliveries from popular mall stores.
Amazon is partnering with a limited number of stores for now. You can order products from PacSun, GNC, Superdry, and Diesel. Sur La Table and 100% Pure will be available soon.

The local deliveries are currently available in select cities, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Miami, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Seattle, and Washington, DC. If you're near any of the cities, you can browse local mall stores on Amazon's site.
Once the order is placed, the store receives the order from Amazon, which then fulfills it from the inventory in the store. An Amazon delivery person then picks up the order from the retail location and delivers it to the customer that same day.
According to Amazon, the available items "span dozens of categories, including everyday essentials, beauty, pets, toys, electronics, and apparel."
The service is free for U.S. Prime members who spend $25 or more on qualifying products and $2.99 for those who spend under that. Some stores offer the option to purchase items online and pick them up in the store, but that seems to defeat the purpose of the service altogether — unless you want to be able to try things on in the store, but you could just do that without the extra step of buying things online beforehand.
