Harvard Book Store Launches Bicycle Delivery Program

Harvard Book Store will now deliver books straight to your house, by bicycle.

Here’s more about the program: “[S]uper speedy, environmentally responsible, and inexpensive delivery service to the Boston area. In partnership with MetroPed, ‘Boston’s human-powered delivery service,’ Harvard Book Store will now deliver all local orders for as little as $5, six days a week, using emissions-free vehicles. And all in-stock orders placed for Cambridge and parts of Somerville and Allston will receive same- or next-day delivery.”

It seems like a great local bookstore strategy that could work in other places–focus on the special things that only a local bookstore can do.  What do you think? (Via Kevin Smokler)
