The newly opened Whole Foods Store in Addison has staff which will help customers with their Amazon packages, allowing them to be returned without a box, and even offering a packaging service.

It can also store packages for up to 15 days, instead of the three it currently offers, allowing for greater flexibility.

Although the service is available to all Amazon customers, Prime members will receive additional perks, including free same-day delivery with no minimum order.

Its not yet clear if the service is set to be rolled out across any more locations, but usually if it proves popular the tech giant will implement it across its wider store network.
