Amazon to open distribution center at Bulova-Woodside
« on: October 20, 2018, 12:06:09 AM »
The location is 26-15 Boody St., not the Bulova Corporate Center by Home Depot.

But actually kinda close enough from here to pick up purchases from that distribution center.

I wonder if you can do that?

I kind of doubt it, but you never know. If they had that available, they'd have to pay to staff a pickup area, and also create space for a pickup area. I imagine for them it would be much more trouble than it's worth, and for no reward.

I'm not sure why you'd want to pick stuff up anyway, since one of the great conveniences of life is ordering online and having things arrive at your doorstep.

you cannot.

but there is an Amazon "storage locker" at the 7-Eleven on Roosevelt where you can have packages delivered. that's an option given on my Prime account, at least.

It would be GREAT to have a pickup there if you need something immediately. Or at least as soon as it gets there to the center.

I will suggest it to them!

this is a warehouse. as a rule, companies don't let you into their warehouses, much like you can't go to the USPS distribution centers to pick up your mail if you track and see it's there. insurance reasons among others.

yes, i know. i'm not thinking ten years ahead. but this is a fact all across the US.

while you're at it, demand free delivery for everything for everyone, fee-free. overnight.

and while you're at it, please return to your 'shut down laguardia permanently' crusade.

Hey A-Z, just got a private call on my Amazon phone from Mr Bezos and they're opening up the warehouse just for you. Just need to show ID with your JHL username on it and you're good to go.

Brick-and-mortar stores offer this service. You visit the store in person (by foot, car, public transportation), view/touch/smell the item, pay for it on the spot, and take it with you.

Soon they will offer one or two hour service if their distribution center is just down the road. Bad for local businesses. Good for the price sensitive consumers.
