Google Puts A BufferBox Locker In A San Francisco Coffee BarBy: Chris Crum - April 16, 2013
Back in November, news came out that Google acquired BufferBox, a locker service for people receiving packages from online retailers.
A Google spokesperson said at the time, “We want to remove as much friction as possible from the shopping experience, while helping consumers save time and money, and we think the BufferBox team has a lot of great ideas around how to do that”
Well, it looks like they’re getting started. BufferBox co-founder Mike McCauley tweeted on Monday that there’s now a BufferBox pickup in a San Francisco Coffee Bar, which is reportedly the first U.S. location (hat tip: Drew Olanoff):

According to McCauley, they’re still in the process of testing, but they hope to have it available to the public soon.
