Amazon launches locker program in Baltimore

Amazon launches locker program in Baltimore

Baltimore-area Amazon customers, some frustrated by package theft, now have another option for delivery than their front steps and porches.

The online retail giant, which opened a massive distribution center in East Baltimore last year, has brought its Amazon Locker program to the region, setting up nine self-service package pickup points.

Most of the nine Baltimore-area Amazon Lockers are inside Shoppers Food and Pharmacy stores.

Amazon emails a customer a unique digital code that they can enter into a touch screen on the high-tech cabinets, which opens a compartment in the locker with their package.
