Click and collect is definitely a trend, not least because it's lower cost for retailers. In fact I'm surprised that the delivery companies aren't developing a shared locker network.

Are you sure about amazon linking up with Argos?
Ooops… eBay + Argos...! Amazon have the lockers everywhere idea.

Austerity and zero hours contracts mean more new parents are having to go for 2nd hand stuff. And others buy online.

That's an especially clickbait-like site with 1 item per page and lots of advertising. Some of those retailers are only closing selected branches - they've got all the major supermarkets on their list and some stores (e.g. Morrisons, M&S) more than once!
