The Canada Post Office launched a pop-up drive thru store to test the idea of having a package pick-up service. This unique idea caters to the convenience of Canadians who have little time to run errands. The quick pick-up location aims to make the overall postal service a more simplified experience.

This service will undoubtedly aid those who shop online. The objective is to allow consumers to make their purchase ahead of time. This eliminates the need to deliver packages or have them sit at a post office with random hours. The drive-thru will allow the consumer to pick up their parcel whenever they can.

Located in Toronto, this futuristic Canada Post Office is labeled as a 'parcel-pickup center,' which hopes to bring the act of mailing packages into the world of high-tech outlets. In addition, the postal service will incorporate self-service kiosks, which are open 24 hours a day and seven days a week to meet consumer demands.
