Spar installs Amazon lockers in nine stores

Spar has installed Amazon lockers in nine of its stores to allow customers to pick up goods ordered from Amazon.co.uk at their local Spar shop.

The lockers are situated in Blakemore Retail Spar stores with further lockers planned to be added in the future. The stores include Fosse Road, Bocking Lane, Upton, Birmingham University, Bannerbrook, Broomhill, Grantham, Burbage and St Albans.

Spar UK retail development controller, Barry Wallis, said: "This is a highly innovative move from Spar UK, showing our commitment to launching the latest technologies that provide the best possible convenience to shoppers.

"Online sales are growing with more than half of the UK population now shopping online.

"In recent months, we have introduced mobile phone charging units, free WiFi and mobile marketing apps in-store for our customers. This is the next step in making our stores even more service-friendly."

Spar will promote the service both in-store and on its consumer website.
