In my local case, the payment is done at collection time with any method the main marked uses,
i.e. cash and card. Thus I'd call it a shop

Indeed having 'collect' in the value sounds better than pick-up.

That layout sounds more like a loading point?

I find "outpost" completely misleading (usage <500). An outpost is a small military position at some 
distance from the main army, a remote part of a country, or an isolated branch of something (Oxford 
dict). It has nothing to do with the collection of pre-ordered goods.
