EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Online retailer Amazon is in the process of opening an “Instant Pickup” store in Eugene.

The Register-Guard reported (https://bit.ly/2x4m8hR ) Wednesday that Amazon is eyeing a vacant storefront near the University of Oregon.

Amazon officials didn’t respond to requests for comment, but a building permit application filed with the Eugene Planning and Development Department shows it is interested in a location on 13th Avenue.

Small electronic products like phone chargers and other items would be available to pick up at the store within two minutes of a customer placing an order using the Amazon Shopping app on a smartphone.

It would be Amazon’s third Instant Pickup site, with two already being open in Los Angeles and Berkeley, California.
