As part of an ongoing $1.2 billion supply-chain upgrade, Home Depot Inc. has started same-day delivery across the U.S. to help it stay relevant with consumers’ need-it-yesterday mentality.

The home-improvement chain had already been using trucks to deliver large items such as building materials from stores in a day or so. Now, aided by startups Roadie Inc. and Deliv Inc. in its top 35 metro markets, online orders made before noon of about 20,000 products -- everything from Halloween decorations to power tools -- can arrive by van or car the same day, starting at a cost of $8.99.
