Nationwide electrical retailer Currys PC World has announced a partnership with delivery brand On the dot to launch a new same-day delivery service across the UK.
Introduced across the country, the new fulfilment offering is designed to make shopping with Currys PC World stores ‘quicker and more convenient than ever before’, the company says.
Customers opting for same-day deliveries will be able to select a two-hour delivery timeslot of their choice that day, between 12pm-10pm. Same-day timeslots will automatically be displayed upon checkout to eligible customers: those placing an order for a small item before 4pm. Same day delivery will initially be limited to customers purchasing small items, classified as everything apart from major kitchen and laundry appliances, and TVs over 40in.
The new service, which runs seven days a week and costs customers £9.95, is available to shoppers within a 10-mile radius of one of 242 Currys PC World stores across the UK.
Currys PC World eCommerce director Stuart Ramage commented: “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.”
On the dot, which is part of the CitySprint Group, chief executive Patrick Gallagher added: “We are delighted that Currys PC World has chosen to work with On the dot for its new delivery offering. 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.”
