    General Store is available 24/7 in all of the markets where Postmates operates. The startup’s running a promotion with free delivery this weekend through Monday, September 1st at midnight. Postmates deliveries start at $5 and vary based on distance.

    When I checked out General Store in the LA area, it had a sizable selection. Categories include: Allergy, Baby, Bath & Body, Candy & Snacks, Cold & Cough, Digestion & Nausea, Drinks, Eye Care, Feminine Care, First-Aid, Hair Care, Household, Men’s Grooming, Oral Care, Pain Relievers, Sexual Wellness, Sleeping & Snoring, Vitamins & Supplements and Women’s Beauty.
