Stockland, a diversified Australian property group and the Australian Stock Exchange listed company, has partnered with tech giant Amazon, as the first Australian property company to offer Amazon Locker, a secure, self-service kiosk for parcel pick ups.
Stockland has recently installed Amazon Locker across a number of convenient retail locations in NSW and Victoria. Locations include the Piccadilly Centre in Sydney CBD, Stockland Green Hills in Maitland, Stockland The Pines in Doncaster East as well as Stockland centres in Merrylands, Baulkham Hills, Balgowlah, Glendale, Nowra, Shellharbour, Wetherill Park, Point Cook and Wendouree, and others.
Amazon Locker provides customers with the flexibility to pick up a package at a convenient time, rather than having it delivered to a home or business address.
”Shipping to an Amazon Locker at Stockland is easy, secure and available at no additional cost,” said company in a statement.
During checkout, customers will select a Locker at the nearest Stockland location as their shipping address. Once their package is ready for pickup, customers will receive an e-mail along with a barcode that they’ll use to pick up their package during store hours.
Stockland Group Executive and CEO of Commercial Property, Louise Mason, said the company was proud to partner with Amazon to offer customers convenient pick up access to their online purchases.
“Our customers continue to demonstrate their desire for innovative in-centre features, tech-integrated amenity and convenience led initiatives to enhance their everyday shopping experience. It is integral that Australian shopping centres continue to evolve and adapt to retailer, customer and global demands.”
“This partnership with Amazon is another way we are curating our offering to what our customers really want. We view online shopping on platforms such as Amazon as an extension of what our retail town centres can provide customers.”
“Offering Amazon Locker in Stockland retail town centres provides greater convenience for our customers who are not home for the delivery of their purchase and ensures they can pick up
“At Stockland we believe the future of retail is about creating places that are at the heart of communities, provide exceptional convenience and offer tailored and unique experiences for customers.”
