Amazon’s delivery locker system, which was first discovered last month during tests in Seattle, has now been activated in New York City. Instead of having a package delivered to your home or business address, people who live near to a locker location can choose to send it there and then collect it at a convenient time using a unique pick-up code.
The online retailer lists eight locker locations as delivery options in the city, including ones at Gristedes, Rite-Aid and D’Agostino stores in Manhattan. You can check your Amazon address book to see whether you’re able to use the delivery service. A “Search for a Locker Location” option would be available for you to add as a shipping destination at the checkout.
Amazon Lockers have also started appearing in the UK, with the package delivery system currently available to people living in the London metropolitan area.
