Amazon to offer collection service at local cornershops

Amazon UK is set to launch a service that will allow UK customers to pick up their purcahses from one of 4,700 cornershops across the UK.

Amazon have been trialing this service secretly with shops that already use PayPoint by using their own CollectPlus parcel service.

CollectPlus already offers Amazon users the ability to collect their purchases from cornershops and even garages that are often open from early in the morning until late in the night and often seven days a week.

The service will now be extended across a total of 4,700 locations making the service far more accessbile for more Amazon customers.
