A new parcel shop network, Local Letterbox, is looking for franchisees with the aim of opening 2,000 stores by next summer.
Customers will be able to collect and post parcels from locations that are convenient to them from 7am till 10pm, 6 days a week.
Iain Wood, commercial director, said: “People across the country need a better solution for the safe and reliable delivery of their online orders. Consumers are busier than ever nowadays and don’t have the time to sit and wait for a delivery. They want a service that is convenient for them that they can bolt on to their daily routine amid the school run or a trip to the local shop. This is what Local Letterbox will deliver its consumers.”
