Region trials a convenient way to collect goods
John Lewis has launched a new collection service, which it says could generate an annual £2,700 for individual convenience stores.
Its CollectPlus service is set to be trialled in the region, with the aim of enabling shoppers to collect purchases orders online from participating corner shops, convenience stores and petrol stations.
Although the retailer does offer a door-to-door delivery service, it said the new scheme will enable shoppers to collect purchases at a time to suit them, rather than take time off to wait in.
The partnership already offers a 'click and collect' service through its departments stores and Waitrose outlets.

The service is being offered in partnership with CollectPlus, the largest store-based parcel service in the UK, which has over 5,250 convenience stores, newsagents, supermarkets and petrol stations in its UK network.
The John Lewis CollectPlus service will initially be available at 1,500 locations in the Westcountry and three other UK trial regions.
Among the regional stores signed up to the scheme is the Premier village store in St Just. Owner Michelle Burton said: "Our customers use the CollectPlus service when buying their milk and newspapers in the morning or picking up dinner and a bottle of wine in the evening."
