Had an interesting thing happen over the weekend. Ordered an electronics item from the big A on Sat. Did the free shipping, which usually takes a while to go out. I was amazed to get the 'shipped' notice Sun. Then when I looked it up on UPS, it just magically appeared at the nearest UPS waypoint, which is typically the last stop before it comes to the neighborhood center. Is UPS somehow doing a logistics storage type thing for them or something? This was an item direct from A, not a third party seller.
