Startup Deliv fulfills orders by having items taken to collection points in hundreds of malls in those eight markets, where they are picked up and delivered by crowdsourced drivers. Its investors include major mall property firms Simon Property Group, General Growth Properties, Macherich and Westfield, and its 250-plus retail partners include Macy’s, Brooks Brothers, Foot Locker, Chico’s, Crate & Barrel and Neiman Marcus.

Also, customers in New York, San Francisco and Miami can get $25 toward shipping and gift wrapping from Shyp.
