Morrisons to install hundreds of Amazon Lockers at its supermarkets

Hundreds of Amazon Lockers are set to be installed in Morrisons’ supermarkets, who is expected to announce its best half-yearly performance this week.
Shopping centres, train stations, universities, convenience stores and even airports are among the locations where there are already more than 1,000 Amazon Lockers installed.
The lockers will be useful way for people to pick up their Amazon orders while they are doing their food shop at Morrisons.
Amazon customers can order their products as normal, and have them sent to a nearby locker, if they know they will be unable to wait in at home for the delivery.
They will receive a text or email with a unique code, which they then simply scan the barcode of or enter the code into the locker, to open it and retrieve their order.
“We are delighted to introduce Amazon Lockers at Morrisons supermarkets,” said John Tagawa, Amazon’s VP of UK operations.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Morrisons is expected to deliver its best half-year sales performance in four years later this week, with like-for-like sales expected to have grown 0.7 per cent in the first half of this year.
