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 today said it will be temporarily suspending 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.

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