retail news in context, analysis with attitude

TechCircle.com reports that in India, Amazon has begun offering pick-up service, allowing customers there to have online orders delivered to "pickup stores located at some convenient locations."

According to the story, "This is ideal for customers who do not have a fixed address wherein they can get their products delivered, or have no one at home to collect the product when it arrives. To begin with, the company is offering the service only in two cities- Mumbai and Delhi. To select a particular pickup location, users can search for them via their address, pin code or nearest landmark."
