Amazon to open ten high street stores across the UK

Online retail giant Amazon has opened its debut Clicks and Mortar store at St Mary’s Gate in Manchester, the first of ten temporary branches which will be opening across the UK.

The Clicks and Mortar chain will be offering everything from food and drink to electronics, cosmetics and homeware and are part of a year-long initiative which sees Amazon aiming to help 100 small businesses obtain a foot-hold on the UK high street.

The new stores will also offer Amazon Lockers in convenient, accessible locations, making it easier for customers to collect Amazon orders they have ordered online.

Doug Gurr, Amazon UK’s country manager, said: “Amazon is committed to supporting the growth of small businesses, helping them boost the economy and create jobs across the UK. Small businesses are one of our most important customer groups.”
