British brewery and pub chain Scottish & Newcastle are testing a scheme with the British post office that will see pubs used as delivery centers. The UseYourLocal service lets packages get redirected when the Post Office can’t deliver. It’s part of a scheme that aims to out the pub back into the community by offering more relevant services than keeping 17 year olds occupied on a Friday night. Springwise reports that about 500 pubs have joined the scheme.
