    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    There was a story on the morning news about a possible deal between Amazon and 7-11. Lockers are being installed at Seattle-area 7-11's with the rumor being that customers can request delivery of their Amazon packages to their favorite 7-11 location.

    Interesting concept. They do have some questionables working at some of those places though.

    Mcdonalds should do this. Or, Burger King. That flame broiled smell get me whenever drive by one. It's like driving by a steak house. The smell is intoxicating!

    blah, why 7-11's?

    keep them at local ups or fedex stores, or even kiosks at usps where customers have 24-hour access to those lockers & a 24/7 survellance camera to oversee them

    Better yet, leave things the way they are.

    For the extra profits on slurpees and cupcake sale on their way out the door.

    I got excited by the title of the thread and thought maybe I could get Slurpees without even having to leave my couch and they would be delivered to me. DAMN!!!!

    Interesting concept.
    When I lived in Houston, Tx, the nickname for a 7Eleven was the "Stop and Rob".
    I have not seen an operating 7Eleven-( many boarded over)- in decades.
    Once, it was the largest convenience store chain down here.
    Now it is almost nonexistent.

    Million dollar idea, DS.
    We could call it,
    "Beer & Boxes."

    Funny they're popping up all over the place in NYC.

    They want to open up 100 by 2015.

    Amazon scares me. They are the only people who could create a shipping company that could really cut into UPS business. They are Smart Smart Smart.
