There was a huge surge in Amazon parcel collections at convenience stores as shoppers took advantage of Amazon Prime Day (12-13 July) sales, according to new Collect+ data.

The week of the deal saw the number of parcels collected by consumers across 10,000 Collect+ stores nationwide reach 49,956, a 20% increase on the week before, and 13.3% year-on-year increase.

Nick Williams, Head of Strategic Partners and Product at PayPoint, said: “Online shoppers have always been eagle-eyed when it comes to online discounts and the surge in parcel deliveries during Amazon Prime Day is testament to more people than ever seeking bargains amid the rising cost of living, inflation and other economic pressures.”
