We’ve been working hard to bring you more ways to receive your uniforms in ways that suit you. Our new Click & Collect ParcelShops service provides you with the ultimate convenience to collect at a time that suits you, at a cheaper cost all the while benefiting the planet. What’s not to love?
First things first: what is ParcelShops?
ParcelShops is a network of 7,000 locations across the UK, based in corner shops, fuel stations and independent businesses. You can use these locations to collect and return their parcels and pickup 7 days a week.
Below, we present particulars on how a ParcelShops partnered delivery can truly pay off.
By choosing to deliver your new uniform to a local ParcelShop you can instantly save on shipping costs.
Let’s put it into how much it will cost to do three different types of shipping.
For instance, say you have (at a given time) the following delivery needs:
- 1 48-hour delivery.
- 1 Next-Day delivery.
- 1 Return delivery.
By choosing ParcelShops, you can shave a collective 25% off the old price of delivery for these three options.
And for those wondering, that price includes delivery-related fuel costs as well.
2. Sustainability for Consumers
We’ve talked recently about our sustainability goals regarding collaborating with Ecologi. In addition to our work with Ecologi, we’re continuously seeking more ways to enhance our green business profile on a global scale.
Enter ParcelShops. By far, UK consumers (regardless of age) indicate that an eco-friendly delivery option is important to them.
3. Sustainability for Simon Jersey
The results are in: reports prove that the ParcelShops delivery option is a positive game changer for carbon dioxide emissions as a shipping selection. In fact, estimates from Accenture, Apex Insight and InPost suggest it will save more than 11 tonnes of carbon annually.
4. Suitability for Shoppers
Suffice to say that we’re all about using words that start with “S” here at Simon Jersey (so to speak). What we really want to emphasise in this block is that ParcelShops offers a much more convenient way to shop for work uniforms.
There’s convenience in all our UK ParcelShop locations, which includes over a thousand Tesco stores). In fact, 80% of the UK population is within a 10-minute walk to a ParcelShop delivery location.
5. Successful Deliveries
To wrap things up, the ParcelShops delivery option significantly increases the probability of first-time delivery success. Moreover, it also reduces the need for customer service calls – sometimes by more than 75%.
