Stop & Shop has launched a pickup locker solution at a store in Boston’s Brigham Circle neighborhood, according to a company press release.
The lockers, which contain three temperature zones, are remotely monitored 24/7 and sanitized after each use. Shoppers who place an order will receive a text within 15 minutes of their pickup time that includes a code to open their locker. Each order carries a $2.95 fee.
As pickup popularity grows, retailers see lockers and kiosks as being particularly attractive options for urban stores where shoppers visit on foot or by bike.
