Amazon has been installing what it calls "lockers" in a number of nationwide retail chains, including 7-Eleven, Rite-Aid (RAD - Get Report) and Walgreen (WAG,) stores. Some of those retailers are open 24/7. The idea is for customers to have their Amazon packages shipped to a nearby "locker" -- or one-time use private mailbox -- so that customers don't have to stay home to receive their orders.
If you choose to have your package delivered to a nearby retailer, Amazon ships the package there and sends you an email with a special code that unlocks the locker. That unlock code is good for three days.
