Amazon expands in-store Counter pickup points to thousands of US stores

Shoppers can now pick up their online orders from more local retail locations.

Just four months after the launch of Amazon's in-store pickup option called Counter, the e-commerce giant said it has expanded the service to thousands of locations.

Previously, the service was only available at 1,500 Rite Aid locations from Oyster Bay, New York, to Chula Vista, California. Now, Amazon said thousands more Amazon Hub Counter locations are available at Amazon’s new store partners GNC, Health Mart and Stage Stores.

Counter pickups work with same-day, one-day two-day and standard shipping options. Customers can have their online orders picked up without having to pay for an extra fee.

Amazon.com shoppers will only need to enter their zip codes and their delivery location when checking out to find out where they can access a Counter location. They can also add a certain Counter location to their Amazon address book for a more hassle-free checkout.

As soon as their orders arrive at a Counter pickup hub, customers will receive a notification. When claiming the package, a customer only has to show a barcode to the store staff. Counter pickup points will keep packages for customers for up to 14 days. If customers are unable to pick up their package, it will be returned for a refund.

"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," Patrick Supanc, Worldwide Director of Amazon Hub, said in a statement.

Amazon continues to invite retail partners including convenience stores, and small businesses to join its Counter network via amazon.com/hostacounter.
