Amazon announces U.S. launch of Counter network of staffed pickup points
Amazon announced the U.S. launch of Counter, a new network of staffed pickup points that gives customers the option to pick up their Amazon packages in-store at a partner location. Starting today, customers will have access to more than a hundred Counter locations across the U.S., with thousands of additional locations coming soon. Delivery to a Counter location is available for the tens of millions of items sold on Amazon.com and works with Same-Day, One-Day, Two-Day and Standard Shipping. The service is available to all customers at no extra cost. Available now at more than a hundred Rite Aid stores in the U.S., and growing to over 1,500 by year's end, Counter enables quick and easy pickup of packages. Over time, the Counter network will expand to thousands of other locations through additional partnerships with retailers, convenience stores and small businesses across the U.S.
