M&S the latest to adopt click-and-collect


Marks & Spencer have become the latest retailer to adopt a click-and-collect strategy as it attempts to keep up with the burgeoning “go economy”.

The grocer has announced it would trial in-store lockers in its Teddinton Simply Food store, running until the end of the year.

This enables customers to order their products online and collect their items with a unique barcode at their convenience.

Last week, Morrisons unveiled a partnership with Amazon in which hundreds of click and collect lockers will be available for customer to pick up items ordered through Amazon.

Sainsbury‘s have announced similar plans with their acquisition of Argos, allowing people to collect items ordered from eBay in store.

It is not yet clear whether M&S will expand the concept to other stores.
