Amazon coming to shopping malls - with collection lockers
The reach of Amazon is about to get even, erm... reachier? That’s because the online retail giant could shortly be popping up in shopping centres around. Don’t worry though – they won’t be opening actual stores that are filled with practically everything.
No – what they’ll be doing instead is installing ‘click and collect’ lockers, for you to pick up your Amazon purchases in person, if you’re that way inclined. They’ll be aimed at those of us who buy stuff from Amazon but who aren’t in to take delivery.
Your stuff will be delivered to the locker location of your choice and you’ll be supplied with a unique code allowing you to get into the locker and get your hands on the goods. Got to be easier than making a trip to your local post office miles away from anywhere when you hardly have any spare time.
Amazon have signed a deal with Land Securities, who own a range of shopping centres around the nation and it’s looking as though the first click and collect lockers could be at One New Change in the City, in the city that is That London.
What do you reckon to all that then Bitterwallteers? Will it make your life easier or do you prefer to shop with Amazon so that you DON’T have to visit shopping centres. Tell us, you sexy monkeys.
