Amazon.com launches pilot locker pickup system for customers in New York City, Seattle, and London; customers order online, use an electronic code to retrieve purchases from lockers in convenience stores, supermarkets, pharmacies, shopping centers

LOS ANGELES , December 6, 2011 () – Amazon.com Inc. has launched a secured locker pickup program for customers in Manhattan, New York; Seattle, Washington and London, Internet Retailer reported on Dec. 5.

The secured lockers are placed in locations such as convenience stores, grocery stores, pharmacies and shopping centers.

The program allows customers to select a pickup point when buying their products from Amazon.

Packages are then delivered to a secured locker, which the customer can open with an electronic code that they have previously received via email.

Only purchases that can fit inside the storage lockers—which come in a variety of sizes—and those that have not been purchased via Amazon’s super-saver delivery are eligible for Amazon’s secured-locker pickup program.
