Town opens locker system for online shoppers
5:00pm Friday 1st November 2013 in News
A LOCKER system to coax internet shoppers into Wallingford has been installed in the town centre.
The self-service locker units aim to make it easier for people to pick up packages when they aren’t at home. Mayor of Wallingford Bernard Stone, said: “We hope it will improve town centre vitality.
“It is recognising the impact of internet shopping while encouraging people to come into the town.
“They are different sizes so whether you’re buying a gold necklace or a five-foot long skateboard, they’ll fit.”
They were fitted next to the town council offices in St Martin’s Street on Monday.
The scheme was organised by Wallingford Town Council and South Oxfordshire District Council, but installed by company ByBox.
People who sign up for the scheme will be given details of how to use the system. The service costs around £2.50.
