It's not all that easy to write warehouse software that allows something like that though.

Besides, shipping the order via UPS/Fedex/whatever does not get them more money. What it does allow is them to keep a more bare-bones staff so they don't need to watch for people in some customer facing store front who is there to pick up their order.

I ordered several things for my parents from newegg recently. A laser printer and usb hub were ordered at the same time, shipped as 2 different packages, and arrived in probably about 3 business days. I ordered an external drive for them Sunday afternoon and it arrived today, Tuesday, and I didn't pay for extra shipping. Newegg shipping is fast. If you have problems then you are probably impatient... I've ordered from Newegg for years, only shipping issues I ever had was the box was a bit beat up, but that's not Newegg's fault.
