Thursday snapshot: latest news in brief
Holiday company TUI UK & Ireland has launched click and collect service for its Travel Money Service.
The service is available via TUI's consumer facing websites, Thomson and First Choice, and allows online customers to select foreign currency or travel money cards online.
TUI says the new service is having a positive impact on TUI UK & Ireland’s retail shops by helping to increase footfall and by giving Thomson retail staff an additional opportunity to interact TUI customers face to face.
Vintage retailer Beyond Retro is to open its very first pop-up shop and London’s only retail outlet dedicated to novelty Christmas jumpers.
The shop, which is being launched in support of Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, will be situated in Old Street station as part of the collaboration between TfL and Appear Here to revitalise the retail precinct.
The shop will open on 11 November for six weeks until 21 December.
A new initiative called One Feeds Two has been launched with the aim of tackling the issue of child hunger.
Supported by Sir Richard Branson and food companies across the UK, the initiative uses a ‘buy one, give one’ model whereby every product sold with the One Feeds Two Logo means a child in poverty will be fed a school meal.
Frozen ready meal retailer COOK has signed up to the scheme and will provide a school meal per portion sold on selected Christmas products that carry the One Feeds Two logo. One Feeds Two is hoping that COOK will provide nearly 200,000 school meals through sales of its Christmas range.
