Amazon plans pop-up store on Ohio State campus

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Amazon plans to open a storefront in Columbus near the Ohio State University campus where students can pick up books and other items they've ordered online.

The Seattle-based online retailer has submitted applications for construction and signage to the city of Columbus for a 900-square-foot retail space where students with an Amazon prime membership can pick up items from self-service lockers or with help from an Amazon employee.

Amazon has created similar stores at more than a dozen colleges and universities in the U.S. Some of those schools include Purdue University in Indiana and the University of Pennsylvania.

Officials at Amazon didn't respond to a request for comment on Monday.
