Stockland has announced it will become the first Australian property company to offer Amazon lockers at some of its retail centres, including in Point Cook.

Stockland last week announced it would offer the secure, self-service kiosks for parcel pick-ups at a number of its retail locations in New South Wales and Victoria.

Amazon Locker allows customers to pick up a mailed package at a convenient time, rather than having it delivered to a home or business address.

Once a parcel is ready for pick-up, customers will receive an email, along with a barcode, to use to collect their package.

Stockland Group executive and chief executive of commercial property Louise Mason said the company was proud to partner with Amazon.

“It is integral that Australian shopping centres continue to evolve and adapt to retailer, customer and global demands,” she said.

“This partnership with Amazon is another way we are curating our offering to what our customers really want. We view online shopping on platforms such as Amazon as an extension of what our retail town centres can provide customers.

“Offering Amazon Locker in Stockland retail town centres provides greater convenience for our customers who are not home for the delivery of their purchase and ensures they can pick up,” she said.
