Postal carriers in New York will soon deliver more than bills and junk mail. The U.S. Postal Service will begin delivering groceries later this month, according to a filing it made to the Postal Regulatory Commission.

The filing says the USPS intends to extend its Customized Delivery service to the New York City metro area on or shortly after June 29. Customized Delivery is the name of the service the USPS began testing last year in the San Francisco area, with postal carriers delivering groceries on behalf of AmazonFresh, the e-grocery service owned by Inc., to consumers in 38 ZIP codes.
