Morrisons to introduce Amazon lockers in-store

Morrisons is to install the UK’s largest collection of Amazon Lockers this year as part of its drive to introduce new services in its stores.

The retailer is planning to install hundreds of the lockers at its supermarkets to give customers the option of picking up their Amazon orders without the need to wait at home.

Trevor Strain, chief financial officer of Morrisons, said: “Many busy customers can’t wait at home for their delivery, and we believe the option to pick it up from one of our hundreds of conveniently located supermarkets will be attractive.”

Earlier this year, Morrisons teamed up with Amazon in a new supply agreement which has seen hundreds of Morrisons grocery products being made available to Amazon Prime Now and Amazon Pantry customers.

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 has said one of its key priorities is to add ‘popular and useful services’ to its stores. Over the last 12 months in-store cafes have been improved and the supermarket has partnered with Timpson to expand its dry cleaning, key cutting and shoe repair business.
