Doddle eyes up 47 million people with Kings Cross opening

Doddle has opened its latest store, claiming it is within sight of 47 million people, at Kings Cross railway station in London.

Sited in the middle of King’s Cross Square, the 38th Doddle store occupies a prime spot in front of the many millions of people that pass that way per year, from the London Underground station and main rail terminus, as well as from St Pancras International, home to the Eurostar service.

The store is open Monday to Friday from 7am to 8pm, Saturday 9am to 5pm and Sunday and Bank Holidays from 10am to 4pm. 

The regeneration of the 67 acre area around Kings Cross station has brought with it 50 new buildings, 2,000 homes and 10 public squares, all of which are predicted to attract 30,000 people by 2016

Tim Robinson, Doddle CEO said; “The opening of our King’s Cross store means Doddle has now dominated half of the mainline London train stations on the Monopoly board.

“King’s Cross is a brilliant location for a Doddle store, record passenger numbers and a large population of workers who aren’t at home to accept deliveries during the day. We’re delighted to have secured such a prime location right in the path of more than 47 million people every year and look forward to changing the way the local population send and receive parcels.”

Last month, Doddle announced a new service for parts of central London. A team of Doddle Runners will collect and drop off parcels for customers and carry them by hand to their immediate destination.
