It looks like there is one by ACI, and of course the whole foods as well so this problem goes away in 2025... Still, for how many things you just have to order online when you live downtown, you would think it would be easier to return items.
There has to be a smaller vacant building or retail space that could have something like this added. And maybe one of those Amazon go stores could be added in considering how dense the neighborhood will get in the coming years and how a true, quick, 24-hour convenience store in the neighborhood is non-existent (except for that crap gas station on the other side of 70 on Grand or Wyandotte).

City Harvest, Oaks/Ashland, 413, and 3rd and Grand will add over 650 residential units in the coming years and truly densify the neighborhood to another level. At some point, you would need a 24 hour convenience store (of quality) and an Amazon Locker to serve the residents. Preferably, place it along the streetcar line late night riders (before service ends of course and early morning riders can stop by and get some items and drop off/pickup a package.
One of the retail bays on the back side of Midland could work maybe?
All those retail bays in the Midland will be made into a lobby/playroom for future residents.

Get Epoch Development to recruit a convenience store and an Amazon Locker in the project on Delaware. ToDactivist, take note.
