retail news in context, analysis with attitude

…with brief, occasional, italicized and sometimes gratuitous commentary…

CBS News reports that Wisconsin-based Festival Foods has installed three Amazon Lockers in its stores, featuring "65 locker slots of all different shapes and sizes, used for pick-ups and returns."

The company says that the lockers will be a safe haven for delivered packages in a market where there are concerns about package thefts from people's homes.

A good thing for bringing in traffic and offering shoppers added convenience. Not so great if those same customers start using them to pick up grocery products they've ordered from Amazon.
