Rumors surfaced this weekend that online retail giant Amazon.com is secretly planning to open its own stores on high street. Citing unnamed property owners, the Sunday Times reported that Amazon "is understood to be scouring the country for high-profile sites".
The rumored purpose: Amazon wants to give its customers the ability to order online and pick up in-store. Major brick-and-mortar retailers have seen their own 'click-and-collect' services gain steam and it doesn't take a leap of faith to imagine that Amazon sees its inability to deliver a similar service as a potential threat to its competitiveness.
