Who has time to stay home and wait for their packages? Not you! And now, with Amazon’s new Counter service, you don’t have to.
The Internet giant recently announced the addition of Counter, a network of staffed pickup points for packages in partner stores. With more than 100 Counter locations already up and running across the country (and thousands to come soon), you can now get your goods delivered by Amazon at your local participating Rite Aid store.

Patrick Supanc, Worldwide Director of Amazon Hub, said in a press release, “With Counter, we’ve leveraged our growing logistics network and invested in new, easy to use technology to give customers yet another delivery option rooted in flexibility and control. We are excited to partner with national businesses like Rite Aid, and local businesses in the future, to create an outstanding experience for our shared customers.”
So how do you use Counter? Just shop Amazon as you normally would. Select one of the Counter pickup points at checkout and wait for an email. The email will come with a barcode to use for pickup, the address of the participating Counter store and the store’s hours. You’ll have 14 days from the time you get the email to pickup your order.
