Amazon Lockers Coming Soon to Staples Stores

Posted by at 3:07 pm on November 6, 2012

Amazon.Com  the world’s largest Internet retailer, is trying to let customers avoid having to wait for ordered packages due to a missed delivery. Staples Inc, the largest U.S. office supply retailer, has agreed to install “Amazon Lockers” in its U.S. stores, a Staples spokeswoman said recently.

Amazon Lockers debuted in 2011 as part of a strategy to offer a quasi-in-store pickup service, similar to those offered at Best Buy and Wal-Mart. After purchasing a product through Amazon.com, customers can choose to have it delivered to a specified locker at a location where Amazon’s service is available free of additional charge. Once delivered, the customer has three days to pick up the product from the locker before it’s sent back for a full refund.

Since the lockers are small, Amazon will only ship smaller packages that can both fit into the spaces and weigh less than 10 pounds.
