List of shops open for click and collect including Argos, Currys PC World and Sports Direct


CLICK and collect shopping could be banned in England if lockdown measures are extended to encourage Brits to stay at home.

Ministers are reported to be considering extending lockdown rules to stop all non-essential shops from offering the service, such as clothes and cafes.

Argos shoppers can still choose to click and collect orders during lockdown

Only supermarkets would be allowed to offer the service to reduced queues for groceries in stores.

Under the current lockdown rules in England, stores, cafes and pubs can continue to allow customers to pick up online orders from branches.

But officials are said to be concerned with the long queues of customers waiting to collect goods and fast food.

John Lewis has said it will temporarily suspend the service, although customers can still pick up goods ordered through the retailer from Waitrose stores.

Meanwhile, McDonald’s stopped customers from collecting orders in branches last week.

In Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon has announced a ban on click and collect services for non-essential retailers.

People who do use click and collect services from supermarkets, for example, will need to book ahead to prevent any crowding.

The First Minister also said Scots will only be allowed to pick up takeaway food and drink if they are collecting it through a serving hatch or doorstep.

While the rules have not changed yet in England, we take a look at the retailers who are continuing to offer click and collect services and how much they cost.
