News From The Future: Your Amazon Purchases In a 7-11 Locker… John Cook @ Geekwire writes –

What are these lockers — which stand about 7-feet tall and take up a sizable chunk of the north wall — all about? One of the clerks explained that they would allow Amazon customers to pick up packages at the 7-Eleven.

When asked if they had more information about getting one of the lockers, the clerk suggested I contact Amazon. He then said that they plan to activate the lockers on Friday.

From I recall when I was in Japan, this is how a lot of packages are delivered / stored. When the post service goes bust in the USA soon, this will be the next “PO” box.
