Amazon is making easier for UK shoppers to get the goods they ordered with a variant of a service already offered in the US, the ability to send the items to a local shop instead of to their homes.
In the US, Amazon has "lockers" in several cities where buyers can go to pick up the goods any time they want.
The idea is to make it possible to get the goods delivered even if you're not going to be home at the time they're supposed to arrive.
Many businesses don't allow employees to receive packages at their work addresses, leaving many with the only option of either waiting in for the package to arrive or going to the local post office to pick it up.
Amazon is trialing the new service in the UK, starting with items such as books or clothes. These can now be delivered to several thousand places across the country, such as corner shops or newsstands which generally stay open until later.
