After an arduous expedition that must’ve lasted hours, an intrepid frontiersman in the Seattle area has finally unearthed the Holy Grail of convenience store cubbies — Amazon’s elusive delivery locker, at 7-Eleven. GeekWire‘s John Cook discovered the prototype lockers at a 7-Eleven in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, where store clerks told him that the system wouldn’t be activated until Friday. According to Cook’s description, the setup consists of about 40 different sized containers, centered around a keypad and monitor (neither of which was illuminated during his visit). All told, the array of P.O. Box-style cabinets stands about seven feet tall and is completely devoid of Amazon branding. The in-store pick-up program may roll out of a nationwide basis next summer, but you can check out a photographic sneak preview at the source link, below.
