Amazon has announced on its UK website that it will no longer be delivering to Collect+ stores from 24th August 2015.
In a statement posted in the Pickup Locations section of its UK website Amazon added that orders placed for delivery to a Collect+ store prior to this date will be delivered as normal and customers can still use their Collect+ location to return their orders, where applicable.
Commenting on the change, Amazon said: “Occasionally, we need to make changes to our range of Pickup Locations to ensure we can continue to provide customers with the greatest possible service, low prices and convenience when shopping online. We continue to add to our network of more than 13,000 Amazon Pickup Locations across the UK, which currently includes Amazon Locker, Pass My Parcel, Doddle and Local Collect. Amazon Pickup Locations include rail, tube and petrol stations, newsagents and convenience stores, universities, libraries, business parks, an airport and Post Office branches.”
