Amazon to Install Delivery Centers in UK Malls

It looks like the Seattle based pilot program mentioned earlier this week isn’t alone; Amazon also plans to launch a similar system in the UK in the near future.

Retail Week is reporting that Amazon has signed a deal with Land Securities, an UK based property management company. They’ve worked out an agreement to place Amazon’s locker system, which is going to be called “Click & Collect”, in malls operated by Land.

This system should go live inside the next week or two at various locations across London. The lockers will likely be placed in secondary corridors (near bathrooms, perhaps). Right now only one location has been identified (at One New Change), so this might UK program be as much of a pilot as the Seattle based one.
