Amazon to Deliver Parcels to Over 5,000 Cornershops

By Jon Partridge on at

Amazon has stepped up its game, allowing you to pick up your orders from over 5,000 cornershops and newsagents up and down the country, further blurring the line of being just another online retailer.

No longer do you have to wait in all day for the postie to deliver your packages, as with the new scheme you can have packages delivered to any local newsagent instead of home, so you can waltz down to your local shop of choice and pick up your parcel whenever it is convenient for you. You can also return unwanted items using the "Collect+" scheme the same way, similar to fashion retailer ASOS, making exchanging faulty gadgets and clothes a doddle. [The Telegraph]
