Argos launches revolutionary Shutl delivery service
Central London-based visitors to argos.co.uk can now get their orders within as little as 90 minutes, or pick a one-hour delivery window from 9am to 9pm, seven days a week.
The trial, will last six months and is the latest development in Argos’ multi-channel strategy that aims to improve the customer proposition for cross-channel shoppers. Argos parent company, Home Retail Group, recently announced that 22% of Argos total sales in FY 09/10 were customers using the online Check & Reserve service for store collection, with this channel growing by 36% for a second year in a row.
The Shutl delivery service is offered to all 14,000-plus products currently available for reservation on Argos.co.uk.
Ross Clemmow, Argos Director of Marketing Operations, commented: “This service provides us with a flexible and cost effective delivery solution to extend the potential of Check & Reserve. Check & Reserve customers in the trial catchment area will still receive the convenience of securing stock availability, with the optional choice and convenience benefit of having it delivered to them fast, at a time that suits.”
