Until recently, Amazon offered free one-day shipping to Charlotte residents who placed a minimum order of $20. Now, Prime members in Charlotte can get free two-hour delivery on orders of $20 or more, and if you really need your new fidget-spinner immediately, they’re even adding a one-hour delivery service for just $7.99 extra.
“We keep making Prime better, and as our operational capabilities grow, we will continue to invent and expand delivery options that customers love,” commented Greg Greeley, the vice president of Amazon Prime.
Amazon has been rapidly growing their presence Charlotte region over the past 10 years. They’ve added over 2 dozen ‘Amazon Locker‘ locations around our region, build two massive distribution facilities, and recently announced a new hiring spree at their Concord facility.
