Amazon Wants to Turn 7-Eleven Stores into Post Offices?
September 5th, 2011
Amazon has always been a pioneer in the shopping world. They are the number one online shopping website and they didn’t attain that rank by standing still. They are constantly working to innovate and find new ways to make their customers lives easier.
Their latest innovation has to do with you receiving your packages. Amazon hasn’t confirmed this yet, mind you. You know how you sometimes aren’t home to receive packages? Maybe the package is too big for them to leave or you just miss delivery because you had to leave. Amazon has a solution.
They want to deliver your goods to a 7-11. For real. I can’t decide if this is crazy or cool. Your package will be waiting for you and you can get yourself a Slurpee while you are there.
Amazon hasn’t confirmed this, but according to The Daily, a 7-11 store in Seattle has an Amazon locker system installed already. When your package arrives at 7-11 you will get an e-mail with a bar code attached. Just go to the store, use the bar code on your smartphone and let the machine scan it. Your locker will unlock and you can get your package. What do you think?
