Amazon to launch a Sunday delivery service across the UK

Amazon is preparing to launch a Sunday delivery service across the UK in a move which is likely to strike fear into the hearts of independent retailers.

The service will be offered in London, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Nottingham, Manchester and Leeds.

Online sales are expected to grow by 17 per cent in 2014 as e-tailers work to refine and expand their delivery and collection options. According to a recent survey by IMRG Capgemini, online sales already account for more than £1 in every £5 spent by consumers in the retail sector after a 16 per cent rise in sales in 2013.

Jamie Stephenson, UK director for Amazon Logistics, said: “At Amazon, we’re continually innovating on behalf of our customers. We know customers really appreciated the immediacy of Sunday deliveries during the Christmas period and we were able to deliver thousands more parcels in this way in those four weeks.”
