The Seattle Amazon pickup location. The store is located in 14333 Aurora Ave. N. in north Seattle, and it offers free same- and – one-day shipping on millions of things for Amazon Prime shoppers. Usually, customers need to satisfy with a $25 minimum to get free shipping, but Amazon’s pickup places provide free shipping on all orders. There are about 30 pickup places from the U.S., that can be just like a cross between a FedEx or UPS Store and Amazon Lockers. The store provides the exact same secure pickup point for packages as Amazon Lockers, however, it is also staffed with people who can assist with returns and other tasks. Possessing these centralized pickup points assists Amazon farther accelerate its shipping times. The storefront also provides a more secure option for picking up orders as the incidence of e-commerce has resulted in concerns of package theft. The pickup locations signify Amazon’s most current expansion of its own brick and mortar footprint. Amazon’s retail portfolio includes bookstores, grocery pickup places, Amazon Go, pop-ups and, most notably, its own network of Whole Foods stores.
