Amazon has installed collection lockers in office blocks in London as it seeks to make deliveries more convenient.
Lockers have been placed in Cardinal Place, near Victoria in London, New Street Square in the City, and at Thomas More Square in east London, according to The Times.
The move follows Amazon installing lockers at Land Securities’ One New Change shopping centre in the City, as revealed by sister title Retail-Week.com.
In the US, Amazon has struck a deal with convenience store chain 7-Eleven to allow its customers to pick up items from lockers.
None of the collection points in the UK are live yet but are expected to go into operation very soon.
Online retailers are increasingly looking for solutions to make deliveries more convenient. Online catalogue retailer Simply Be is opening stores, and Pixmania is also seeking to open small shops in the UK.
