CHESTERVILLE — A new ‘Amazon Hub’ locker — Jubilant — arrived yesterday at the Mike Dean’s Super Food Store location in Chesterville.
The unit is set to enter service next week, says proprietor Gordon Dean, who signed a deal last month to put an Amazon locker in each of the stores operated by the family grocery chain.
Accessible whenever the store is open (seven days a week), the unit can hold “pretty much any normal sized package for easy pickup,” says Dean, noting it’s “far more secure than your front porch and it also handles returns.”
He adds, “We are happy to add this community service to our Chesterville grocery store.”
Founded by Jeff Bezos, online behemoth Amazon has risen to become the world’s largest retailer, nudging Walmart out of that position last year.
