Posted at 1:04 PM, Mar 04, 2016

Amazon will open a pickup location near the University of Akron, only the second of its kind in Ohio.

The store, which will be fully staffed, will open this summer, according to the company. 

Located at 290 East Exchange St., it will give students a place to pick up and return Amazon orders. 

Amazon Student and Prime members will also get free one-day pickup for orders placed after 10 p.m.

This store is the second in Ohio--after the Cincinnati location.
