A few weeks ago I read on internet News that Amazon were in fact going to develop a new concept for people who do home shopping on the web and have your goods delivered to your local shop in fact there are going to be 5,000 shops across the uk where you can have your goods delivered to, well this new concept has allready started.

I called in a local supermarket today and at the front of the shop was an Amazon parcel locker were one can collect their goods ideal for peolpe who are out at work etc or missed the delivery.

It can only remain to be seen whether this concept is a sucsess.

Makes sense. I think the Post Office really missed a trick on this.

What is it with the post office and losing parcels. Is it the post office or are there just so many scammers out there buying goods and then claiming they have never recieved them. Something needs to be done and the post office need to up their game somehow to combat this problem.

They are doing it already in our little local shop, which is tiny. The staff hate doing it and apart from that there isn't any room for storing the parcels. They are dreading Christmas and it wouldn't surprise me, that in certain cicumstances, there will be pure chaos. They only have 2 staff and run off their feet as it is.

So far as the loss of parcels is concerned, I don't think it is the Post Office in most cases, usually the other companies which now do a postal service. One of them left a parcel on my doorstep, not for me, didn't ring the bell or knock and I was in. It was addressed to someone a fair way along the road and down a little pathway which was accessible.

The concept is already in place and alot of other websites use it already, I order off Very.co.uk for example and you can have it deliverd to a number of local shops for you to collect if you wont be home. Amazon are just going a step further and building their own counters... Nothing new

Dont know if this is related, but a mate went into halfords bidston to buy a radio facia. Shocked at the price 19 , he spoke to a member of staff who said they would check price on amazon. They did this and matched the price of 4.70.

So If a parcel arrives at my house and I'm not home it could get put in the nearest Amazon lock box?

I might be wrong, but I think you'll have to select the lockbox you want it delivered to when ordering.
