Amazon is opening a location in Westwood so you no longer have to wait a week for your textbooks
But really it’s probably just because we’re all impatient af
As if getting Amazon Prime free for 6 months with our UCLA email addresses wasn’t enough, a new Amazon location is opening in Westwood Village across from Chic Fil A. Students with Prime memberships now get free same-day pick up on orders placed before noon, meaning you can literally wait until the last minute to get your textbooks now. According to the Daily Bruin, the location is one of 21 similar locations near other universities like UC Berkeley, UC Davis, and UT Austin.

In addition to being able to receive same day orders, Prime users can test Amazon gadgets including the Amazon Echo, the Kindle, and the Fire Stick. Other benefits include being able to return Amazon orders to the location in Westwood.
The new Amazon store comes to Westwood during the same time a brick and mortar Amazon store, focused on selling books and Amazon electronics, in Century City.
