While many brick-and-mortar retailers have claimed that Amazon is part of the reason for sagging sales and massive store closures, Amazon is continuing to test news waters with brick-and-mortar concepts. First came the Locker Service at Polaris Mall, and as of today, Columbus now has its first Amazon pick-up store location at 2114 N. High St. next to OSU.

[email protected] offers the greater Columbus community a convenient location to pick up and return Amazon orders, including virtually everything one needs, from everyday essentials to technology,” stated Amazon spokesperson Carly Golden. “[email protected] provides customers peace of mind with safe, secure options for retrieving Amazon orders and staff on-site to assist when necessary. Plus, returns are always free at [email protected] Prime and Prime Student members will receive Free One-Day Pickup on millions items. Order by 10 p.m. and pick it up the next day.”

While the service sounds great for OSU students and University District residents who are also Amazon Prime customers, not everyone is excited about Amazon’s continued growth. President Donald Trump tweeted yesterday that the tech giant is hurting the retail industry:

Despite the shaming tweet, Amazon doesn’t appear to show any signs of slowing down.

“This is Amazon’s twenty-third pickup location, and fourth in the state of Ohio,” said Golden.
