Subject: UKNM: New distribution models

Regarding the BBC article.

Nothing that new. The drop off concept is already taking off via the Kosmos
and Urban Fetches of the US (for those who didn't know Urban Fetch is
gearing up for it's UK launch). Deals with the likes of Starbucks I see as
being more common. The concept of local shops acting like 'argos
aggregators' is also a good one but..

If delivery is within an hour, regardless of product (save custom made items
etc) you know when they're going to be there. I think the fact people have
to take a day off to buy a washing machine is very very dumb - time for a
new business model?
