Morrisons to install 100s of Amazon Lockers
Morrisons plans to install hundreds of Amazon Lockers at Morrisons supermarkets this year so that customers can pick up their orders without the need to wait in their home.
The introduction of Amazon Lockers at Morrisons builds on the relationship between the two companies. In May, Morrisons began to supply thousands of grocery items through AmazonFresh in London, Amazon Pantry nationwide and Amazon Prime Now, the company’s ultra-fast delivery service available to more than 30% of the UK population.
John Tagawa, Amazon’s Vice President of UK Operations, said: “We are delighted to introduce Amazon Lockers at Morrisons supermarkets. Amazon Lockers are the delivery option of choice for many customers who want to pick up their shopping at a time and place that suits them best. Morrisons supermarkets are ideal locations for Amazon Lockers which allow people to pick up their parcels while on the move”.
Morrisons are in the middle of an overhaul of their operations which have included a renegotiated contract with Ocado and adding ‘popular and useful services’ to its stores. Over the last 12 months in-store cafes have been improved and Morrisons has partnered with Timpson to expand its dry cleaning, key cutting and shoe repair business. Now with 100s of Amazon Lockers to be installed there’s one more reason for shoppers to visit their local Morrisons.
