Shop for a Cause

Macy’s 12th annual “Shop for a Cause” charity event begins today and will last through Sunday.

In stores, the event will offer customers 20 to 25 percent off select regular-priced and sale items with a $5 donation to the “March of Dimes.”

The offer will differ online.

Customers donating their $5 in stores may also enter for a chance to win a $500 Macy’s gift card.

Amazon Flex First

Amazon is expanding its own delivery service by hiring private drivers who don’t have to wear a uniform or even drive an official vehicle. .

In some cases, these drivers are causing confusion.

One man received a warning from his mailman who saw a car full of packages in his neighborhood.

“Before he had a chance to get any closer to the vehicle the driver ran up to the front porch of a house, ran back to the vehicle, and took off.””

“Amazon Flex First” launched in 2015 in Seattle and has since expanded to more than 30 other cities.
