BufferBox to close its locker service soon, shifting focus to Google Shopping products


Nearly a year and a half after being acquired by Google, BufferBox is finally planning to shut down its delivery lockers. In a blog post, BufferBox states that closing the standalone service was a pretty hard decision to make, but it is now time to "bring the learnings, technology and expertise of the team to future Google Shopping products" -- such as Shopping Express and other services that may come out of Mountain View in the future. Consequently, BufferBox won't be welcoming any new users on its site as of today. Meanwhile, warehouses will no longer accept packages after March 31st of this year, and the last day to pick stuff up from a BufferBox locker is shortly thereafter, on April 21st. Those who were big fans of the service can check out this FAQ here, in which BufferBox tries to answer any lingering inquiry you might have.
