Working with three brick-and-mortar shop chains, Amazon has expanded its Amazon Hub Counter service across the US. The service enables people to pick up their parcels from a store instead of waiting in for a delivery.
The Amazon Hub Counter service is now in partnership with GNC, Health Mart and Stage Stores. As well as staffed counter collection the network also includes parcel lockers.
“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.”
“For six years, my pharmacy team has served our community and made sure our patients get the care they need,” said Laura Temple, RPh, pharmacist and owner of Laura’s Health Mart Pharmacy in Azle, Texas. “Amazon Hub Counter has given my current patients a new, convenient way to pick up their Amazon packages, and it’s also brought in new neighbors who have then been introduced to the meaningful care at my pharmacy. I’m delighted to offer Counter in my local store.”
