2. Click and Collect :

At the checkout, customers located in the UK will be offered the option of picking up their purchase from a drop down menu of UK stores. Lehmanns  will then forward the order to the store which has been selected. That store will be in contact with the customer within 24 hours to arrange collection and payment as customers will not be charged by Lehmanns. By choosing this option customers have implicitly accepted that Lehmanns can share their details with the selected store.
