My home town Thatcham gets an Amazon Locker
The locker is by the rear entrance to the shop next to the photo booth, situated in the area normally reserved for logs and BBQ charcoal. There’s plenty of space in this Co-op for the Locker and shop staff tell me they’ve seen it used a couple of times but expect it’ll be used a lot more towards Christmas.
Thatcham is a relatively small town 4 miles from Newbury with a population of around 25,000 and roughly 12000 houses. In truth it’s not much bigger than a village and has a registered village green in the Broadway, the town centre.
For Amazon to consider Thatcham as a venue for an Amazon Locker means one of two things – Either there’s an unusually high percentage of Thatcham’s population who shop on Amazon (which wouldn’t surprise me) and/or Amazon are starting to deploy a much larger number of Lockers in the suburbs and rural parts of the country.
Have you got an Amazon Locker in your local Co-op store? If you’ve spotted one let us know whereabouts in the country you’re based and whether it’s a rural, town or city location.
