You can pick up now Argos orders from a single London Tube station

We’re all busy, and we all have jobs to go to, meaning we can’t sit at home all day waiting for the delivery people to turn up with our orders. That’s why Amazon lets you pick up your orders elsewhere, and that’ll be why Argos has announced you can pick up orders from Cannon Street Tube Station.

Yesterday the company opened its first collection-only store in the station, conveniently located for anybody who takes the District line to and from the centre of London on a regular basis.

Click and collect is nothing new with Argos, but this store is open from 7.30-19.00 Monday to Friday, and 9.00-18.00 on Saturday, offering same day collection if you order before 1pm. That certainly seems a heck of a lot more convenient than home delivery or heading to the nearest Argos store. Provided you’re passing by Cannon Street that is.

This is only one store for the time being, but with Christmas on its way I can certainly imagine that its going to see more than its fair share of customers. Hopefully this will see similar stores open up across London and the rest of the UK.
