RVers on the road needing to have a package shipped to them have new options – at least when their package comes via FedEx. Imagine stopping at a supermarket, walking in and picking up that precious parcel. It’s already a reality.
If your travels take you near an Albertsons, Kroger, Walgreens, Fred Meyer, Jewel-Osco, Randalls, Safeway, Shaw’s, Star Market or Vons, then your FedEx package could be waiting for you. It’s a handy innovation (and one that those other guys with the brown trucks ought to be thinking about) that can help travelers get their goods more readily.
To find a pickup location on your travel itinerary, simply point your internet browser to fedex.com. When you get there, bring down the tab for “Locations” and click on “FIND A LOCATION”. The next window will have you enter a zip code or city and state – but go a step further and click the “More” option, then click the box “Hold at location.” This will bring up all the hold locations, including those like Albertsons or Walgreens. The detail information for each location also indicates important information, such as weight and/or size limitations for packages delivered to those locations.
So, need a quick package and don’t know where to go? It may be much closer than you think!
