Amazon Expands Pickup Network In US
Amazon has announced the expansion of Counter, a service that offers customers the option to pick up their Amazon packages at a partner location across the US.
The online giant has teamed up with GNC, Health Mart and Stage Stores to expand its pickup network by thousands of locations.
No Extra Cost
The pickup service, which is available on all same-day, one-day, two-fay and standard shipping delivery services, is available at no extra cost to customers, Amazon said.
“The response we’ve heard from our customers and partners after the launch of Counter earlier this year has been tremendous,” explains Patrick Supanc, Worldwide Director of Amazon Hub.
“This new network of pickup points gives customers a pickup experience that is fast, flexible and convenient, and partners are thrilled with the strong engagement and additional foot traffic Counter is driving for their stores," he added.
Counter forms part of Amazon Hub, which also operates thousands of Amazon Lockers across the US.
Since its launch during the summer, Amazon Hub Counter has 'brought in tens of thousands of Amazon customers to partner locations', the retailer said in a statement.
