The clever people at Amazon UK have recruited 5,000 corner shops to act as pickup depots for their customers.

The Amazon shipments will be delivered to convenient shops with late opening hours, where customers can return items too. The shops have chosen to participate in the hope that customers will buy some groceries when they pick up their shipments – which means that everyone can reap the benefits.
