Click-and-collect sales in the U.K. are expected to grow by 64 percent over the next five years, driven by clothing and footwear, new research has shown. According to Verdict Retail, click-and-collect spending on clothes and footwear will grow to 85 percent of all click-and-collect purchases in the country over the next five years from the current 54 percent share. A growing number of consumers are opting for click-and-collect when purchasing online because it cuts down on delivery charges. In addition, almost two-fifths of consumers make an additional purchase when collecting an online order from stores. Other delivery options, such as delivery to lockers and collection from neighborhood stores, are expected to grow by 117 percent between 2016 and 2021, Verdict Retail said.
