Amazon Pickup Store On Allen Street Permanently Closes

It’s a sad day to be an Amazon Prime member.

The Amazon pickup store downtown appears to be permanently closed. The pickup center, located at 134 S. Allen Street, has been in business for nearly five years.

The store served as an even quicker way for Amazon Prime users to receive their packages. Rather than waiting for their belongings to arrive on their doorstep, people in the downtown area could pick up their packages at this location. Users would arrive at the store, scan a barcode, and retrieve their packages from a locker.

According to a sign on the door, the shop closed for good on Friday, May 13. The store’s information on Google reflects that it’s permanently closed, too.

Individuals can still pick up their Amazon packages in lockers located at both State College Weis Market locations.

The Amazon pickup store is one of three downtown establishments that closed this month. Woodring’s Floral Gardens closed its downtown location and is now consolidated with its Bellefonte location. Crust & Crumb Cafe closed at the beginning of the month after less than two years in business.
