Get A Paper Within the Hour
The New York Times has gone Kozmo with an agreement to try
out the speedy Web-based delivery service for four weeks.
Kozmo.com, which last year started delivering USA Today,
will deliver The New York Times upon request to homes and
offices in nine cities. With a minimum purchase of $5, Kozmo.com
says it will deliver the Times – sold at newsstand
price – within one hour.
Kozmo.com has been expanding its newsstand offerings – more
magazines than newspapers – but shrinking its distribution
reach with last week’s closure of service in two cities. San
Diego and Houston no longer have Kozmo.com’s delivery service,
but residents in nine cities can still order a variety of items
– including videos, CDs, and periodicals – online and
get delivery within an hour. Kozmo.com delivers in Atlanta;
Boston; Chicago; Los Angeles; New York City; Portland, Ore.; San
Francisco; Seattle; and Washington, D.C.
