BRICK AND MORTAR PICKUP
Amazon is urging its customers to pick up their packages at brick-and-mortar locations to keep the holidays “spoiler free” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The online retail giant in a press release on Monday advocated for customers to send their packages “to an alternative location to keep gifts a secret from those at-home” this holiday season.
“Whether customers’ plans have changed or not, Amazon still wants to keep this holiday season special and help make sure those gifting moments stay ‘spoiler free’ by offering options for customers to keep gifts a surprise, as well as track and receive Amazon orders,” the release said.
The alternative locations span across more than 900 cities and towns in the U.S., the company said. Consumers can look for gifts and holiday deals when picking up packages if they choose an Amazon 4-star or Amazon Books location for delivery.
