Currys PC World is to launch a same-day delivery service across the UK. The company has partnered with On the Dot to allow customers to select a two-hour delivery timeslot of their choice that day between 12 and 10pm.
The service will initially be limited to customers purchasing small items – classified as everything apart from major kitchen and laundry appliances and TVs over 40 inches in size. Orders must be placed before 4pm and will cost £9.95 for delivery for shoppers within a 10-mile radius of one of 242 Currys PC World stores across the UK.
Stuart Ramage, eCommerce director at Currys PC World, said: “At Currys PC World, we pride ourselves on helping our customers get it right when it comes to purchasing electrical items and home appliances. From small screen televisions to microwave ovens, it’s important we get their purchase to them wherever they want it, when they want it. We’re excited to be partnering with On the dot to introduce same-day delivery, meaning our customers now have a suite of delivery options available to them, both online and in-store.”
“We know that consumers today expect to shop on their terms and it is retailers like Currys PC World who have put convenient delivery at the top of their agenda, that will succeed in retaining and attracting new customers,” said Patrick Gallagher, CEO of On the dot – part of the CitySprint Group.
