Amazon lockers are a great new idea, allowing people to pick up their parcels when it suits them. Now, Amazon has announced that it's rolling out the scheme across the Staples chain, too.

Reuters reports that the office supply stores will be the latest string of locations to feature Amazon's ultra-convenient pick-up system. When we tried them out last month, we were convinced:

The lockers are stupidly simple. You can even have your locker code texted to you when your order arrives. It doesn't cost anything-standard, one-, and two-day shipping is available for free if you're on Prime. If you have the need for a surrogate mailbox, using Lockers is pretty much a no-brainer.

Amazon has already partnered with other stores in the US— including 7-Eleven, Rite-Aid, Safeway, and Walgreen's—but Staples is a biggy. Just don't mention that Amazon is stealing custom from right under its nose, because that would be rude—and at any rate, you can be sure some serious cash is changing hands to set this scheme up.
