The BufferBox website now mentions (via a pop-up on the home screen)that the service will be available in San Francisco “soon”.

Google recently acquired a company called BufferBox. They built a service that's pretty much the same thing as Amazon's Locker. You order something online, you have it sent to a BufferBox/Locker, you get a notification saying your package is ready to be picked up, and you pick it up. Sounds simple enough, right? But what if Google was planning something a bit more ambitious?

Google bought a company last Friday called BufferBox. Never heard of them? They're only two years old and they're based in Canada, so that's probably why. What exactly does BufferBox do?

BufferBox fixes that by making a cabinet that can be installed in a central location.
