Hoboken gets first Amazon Locker at 7 Eleven

Up until now, no one in Hoboken had a legitimate reason to go into the 7 Eleven at 5th & Washington Streets (because there’s a local convenience store right across the street that has been there for decades and sells the same exact stuff).

However – now you might have justification to enter ground zero of insulin spikes from sugary Slurpees.

Amazon Locker arrives at 5th and Washington in Hoboken

An Amazon Locker has been implemented at this location.

This is a good option for those who don’t have the social skill-set to befriend nearby shops to take delivery of their packages.

The last time I checked – this option wasn’t yet available to ship to, but workers at 7 Eleven said they’ve been receiving packages already.

My guess is that more locations may be coming to Hoboken, such as at Rite Aid or one of the parking garages. Because Amazon must deliver thousands of boxes daily here, and I can imagine one locker becoming backed up rather fast. Maybe missed delivery notes are now a thing of the past?
