Amazon Lockers Appear in NYC Rite Aid Stores
October 17th – Amazon Lockers are now available as a shipping option!
After appearing in Seattle 7-Eleven stores earlier this month, Amazon’s new locker systems are showing up in some New York City Rite Aid stores.
The large metal lockers are used as an alternate delivery location for packages ordered from Amazon.com, and the interactive touch-screen monitor is used to open the correct locker after you input your unique code, provided by Amazon.
Their appearance is a bit of a surprise, as there is no information available about the roll-out of lockers in Rite Aid stores, and all news reports mention only Seattle 7-Eleven stores as the testing area for these new machines.
A test purchase at Amazon.com offered no option to ship to the new lockers.
