Brace Yourselves: Amazon.com Lockers are Here – A New Way to Beat the Moms and Pops – Amigo! – Brogan!

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Now that Amazon.com is charging sales tax (or “use tax” IRL, same smell), there’s no reason that it can’t set up local warehouses and then offer same-day delivery service,right?

So you go to work in the Financh, decide you want a replacement battery for your car keys and order online. Then that evening on your way home you’ll pick it up at an Amazon Locker at 300 California. Or wherever.

That’s called Same Day Delivery. I don’t know if we have that yet but what we do have some new lockers installed all over town these days.

Hi Hayes!

The locker names are kind of goofy.

See?

All the deets:

1. Search for a Locker location near you.

2. “Select” a Locker to add it to your Address Book. Next time you add an item to your cart, click “Ship to this address” to ship it to your favorite Locker location.

3. Once your package is delivered to the Amazon Locker, you’ll receive an e-mail or text message with instructions and a unique pick-up code. Enter your pickup code and the Locker slot with your package will open. Your package will be available for pick-up for three business days after you receive your pickup code.ow Amazon Locker Works - To ship your order at an Amazon Locker:

But tomorrow? Not so much. All the deets.

As I’ll remember her, chugging away heating up Warm Water Cove. Circa aught-seven:

And as she looks today, in front of the historic Sugar House (which is now a cleaned-up DHL warehouse). No more steam:

Good-bye, PPP.

The Men’s Wearhouse on Market Street is Located in the Mom Building, Strangly Enough

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

Remember that George Zimmer guy who always hitting on people’s moms in the Bay Area back in the day? Well, his business got killed by the spread of the Grunge Movement and Casual Fridays and Casual Everydays in the workplace.

All he could do to respond was to talk about Dress Up Mondays* (or Thursdays, I forget) in order to get people back into his outlets.

Anyway, here’s a vestige of the Men’s Wearhouse Era located in the “Mom Building” at Second and Market:
