Customers can collect parcels at tons of stores
Currently, DPD customers can collect parcels at stores from Sainsbury’s/Argos, Matalan, Go Outdoors, Blacks, Millets, Homebase and Doddle Click and Collect points in Morrison’s. The latest partner, Collect+, was created in 2009, with PayPoint becoming the outright owners last April.
