Morrisons rolls out InPost lockers to further 100 stores

Morrisons has announced it is rolling out up to 100 new InPost parcel lockers across its stores.

The move will mean that 80 per cent of Morrisons supermarkets in the UK will have lockers by the end of January.

Morrisons, which is InPost’s longest standing supermarket partner, has had around 290 lockers across the UK since 2014.

New locations will include Croydon, Bradford, Glastonbury, Dumfries and Newport.

InPost said that the expansion reflects an increased interest in ‘trip-twinning’, where customers can combine sending, collecting and returning parcels with their grocery shopping.

“At Morrisons, we always put our customers first, and are constantly looking for ways to make their lives easier,” said Jamie Winter, procurement director, Morrisons. “InPost parcel lockers provide them with the ultimate convenience by allowing them to pick up and return their parcels while they’re visiting our stores — instead of having to go out of their way."

In addition to the new parcel lockers, several of InPost’s existing lockers will be extended in areas where there is higher demand.

Michael Rouse, chief executive of InPost International, said: “Critically, online shopping is here to stay – but part of delivering on this, is a smooth and convenient returns experience for online purchases. That’s exactly where our lockers come in. Morrisons shoppers no longer need to make additional trips to stand in lengthy queues to return items – they can now do so while visiting the supermarket, at a time that suits them best.”

Last month Morrisons announced a range of seasonal cost-saving offers for users of its My Morrisons app as customers struggling with record-high inflation.

The supermarket also recently partnered with Deliveroo to launch a brick and mortar grocery story for the delivery platform.

Delivery HOP is part of the company’s fast grocery delivery arm and will be located on New Oxford Street in London. Customers will be able to order in store through digital kiosks, via the Deliveroo app for collection in store or for local delivery.
