Amazon introduces same-day pick-up service

Amazon are to reveal today a new service in partnership with the newspaper and magazine arm of Connect Group, Smith News. The e-commerce brand will now offer a same-day pick-up service, which allows customers to order Amazon products up to 11.45am, for collection at a variety of 500 corner shops and newsagents from 4pm on that day.

Managing director of Amazon UK Christopher North said:

“This is our fastest pick-up service yet. We have recently added Birmingham International Airport and a number of London Tube stations to our ever-expanding list of pick-up locations.” He continued “Our intention is to keep rapidly adding to the many thousands of ex­ist­ing pick-up locations to ensure that customers all over the UK are provided with as much choice as possible when it comes to the delivery of their Amazon order.”
