Amazon Locker Appears Outside Bennet


A grey block of Amazon lockers appeared unexpectedly last night outside Bennet, and in an exciting turn of events WesStation lines got a little shorter.

The lockers don’t show up on Amazon as a shipping address yet and there isn’t much info about them. I was able to find out its name though: Helix. So that’s exciting.

If you’re curious about what Amazon lockers are they’re a place where you can pick up anything (of a reasonable size) you buy off Amazon. Sadly, Amazon does not offer any deals on shipping if you use it, so Helix’s only real usefulness will be the convenience of not having to walk to Usdan to pick up a package and not having to wait in the sometimes excessively long line at WesStation.
