Amazon’s newest pickup location will open underneath the Terrapin Row apartments Wednesday, becoming the complex’s first retail space.
University of Maryland students and other local residents will be able to pick up and return Amazon orders at the fully-staffed store under Terrapin Row Building A, Carly Golden, an Amazon public relations representative, wrote in a news release Tuesday.
The 3,000-square-foot retail space, complete with a lounge, will operate from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, according to the release. The store will not sell retail.
Amazon Prime members will able to choose same-day pickup for items shipped to the store, Golden wrote. Prime Student is available for a free six-month trial, and at half the price of a regular membership, or about $50 per year, after the trial ends.
About one in five U.S. adults are Amazon Prime members as of January 2016, according to CNN.
As of December, 18 other college campuses nationwide have Amazon pickup locations, including the University of Pennsylvania, the University of California, Berkeley, and Purdue University, where the first location opened in 2015.
