Amazon lockers will soon be rolling out to 50 retail centers operated by Washington Prime Group.

"Amazon Lockers are a great example of how we are capturing the nexus between physical space and e-commerce," said Lou Conforti, CEO, Washington Prime Group. "This symbiotic relationship is increasingly apparent and the 'town center' positioning of WPG retail centers allow us to embrace innovation which drives shopper traffic and enhances the overall experience of our guest." 

"Plain and simple, it is our intent to be the bricks which complement the clicks," he said.
