eBay opens UK High Street outlet

Publish date:

Online auction giant eBay is to open its first bricks and mortar store in the UK.

The one-off five-day experiment will be located just off London's Oxford Street and will trade between December 1st-5th.

Interestingly, the shop itself will have a very limited selection of stock and no tills. Instead, upon inspecting the goods on offer customers will be encouraged to scan a QR code that will log onto eBay using their smartphones and bid for goods.

PCs will also be available in-store for those wishing to check out the eBay website.
