Amazon Locker Delivery program expands with Staples deal

Amazon is continuing its expansion of the Locker Delivery program that lets buyers of Amazon wares ship their purchases to lockers in nearby businesses or stores rather than their home or place of work. The service is especially useful for those who want to surprise someone with a gift or the secretive types. Now, a Staples spokesperson revealed that the retailer will work with Amazon to install the lockers in its stores.

While no additional details were given about the deal, Amazon will pay Staples a small fee for housing its lockers, as it does with other retailers, Reuters reported. Customers will have three days to pick up their purchases from the lockers, as always. Amazon Lockers are found in grocery, convenience, and drug stores.

The lockers have a password lock and are accessible thanks to a pin that Amazon sends users along with the locker's exact location.
