OfficeMax (OMX +2%) jumps into the same-day pickup game for online orders with a new service launching today. The retailer says it requires no minimum purchase and will charge no fees for select items that can be ordered online to be bagged and waiting at the store for pickup within hours. Most industry watchers see the wave of different same-day pickup options as being a wash between competing retailers, although a potential cumulative effect on Amazon isn't discounted completely.
