Amazon Offering Locker Delivery

26 Jul

Amazon really is determined to deliver as quickly as possible and in as many ways as possible. Arlington and other Northern Virginia locales have joined the list of areas where Amazon.com is offering its“Amazon Locker” self-serve delivery pickup service.

Two 7-Eleven stores in Arlington, VA have been outfitted with a bank of electronic, Amazon-branded lockers. Residents ordering from Amazon can opt to have their package delivered to the locker instead of to their house or apartment.

If you choose locker delivery, Amazon will email you a code once the package has been delivered to the locker. You then tap in the code at a touch screen display, and your locker will open. Just don’t procrastinate after getting the email — if your package isn’t picked up for three days, it will be sent back to Amazon and your money will be refunded.

In addition to Northern Virginia, Amazon Locker service is also available in Seattle, New York City, and London. The company is billing the service as “a new and easy way to receive your Amazon packages.
