I work from home so I don't have this problem but I can see how it could get nerve wracking to have a valuable parcel sitting outside unattended all day.

Interesting.... reminds me of BufferBox, the University of Waterloo startup that Google bought and shut down.

Used it for Amazon.ca lighting deal, routed to closest SDM as I am rarely home for delivery. Received 3 emails: one when Amazon shipped it, second from Canada Post with estimated delivery time and third when it arrived to SDM. Very simple and satisfying process, they store it for 15 calendar days and someone else living at your address can pick it up as well with ID.

Yes, that's what I thought.

Ancaster Walmart Superstore has the blue wall of lockers-service is provided by Bybox? Touch screen setup-sounds like the Amazon lockers discussed on the thread. Walmart needs the 6-digit code to open the locker. I happened to touch the screen as a family with two small kids walked by. Of course the youngest one paused at the outer edge of the locker wall to see what I was doing to the screen.
The locker wall is in the better lit section of the exit aisle by the cashiers; short steps to customer service area if anyone has a returns issue, I assume. I'm going to feel sorry for any H&R Block mini office setup under the bulkhead/poorly lit section if it does return for tax season. It does seem the Red Box for movies is moved/gone as it was there in December.

Walmart calls the service Grab & Go. http://www.walmart.ca/en/help/checkout/grab-and-go
