CHRISTMAS SHOPPING COVERED WITH NEW STORE-TO-DOOR DELIVERY SERVICE
London Designer Outlet (LDO) at Wembley Park is making Christmas shopping easier than ever this year by becoming the first UK shopping centre to offer Dropit, the innovative app-based, store-to-door delivery service. And for many customers, the service will be free!
Launching on 1st December, the fully-insured service means customers don’t have to carry shopping bags around as they go, and includes delivery to their preferred address. It means they can shop, dine and relax; safe in the knowledge that their festive purchases will be safely delivered to their home, office or hotel. What’s more, to celebrate the launch of Dropit, LDO is offering the service for FREE when guests spend more than £125 anywhere across the centre, including in its stores, restaurants or even its cinema. Customers will be offered their choice of delivery dates and time slots with delivery to any address in mainland Britain.
Research shows that customers still prefer to touch, test and try before they buy, as it takes so much of the guesswork out of their purchases. By introducing Dropit, LDO shoppers can enjoy the experience of big-brand low outlet prices and the convenience of having all their bags delivered when and where they want them, all in one go. Same-day deliveries are even available for those in a real hurry.
Shopping hands-free means LDO guests have more time to relax and enjoy LDO’s 20 restaurants, bars and coffee shops, and its 9-screen Cineworld. It also helps those going to events at the neighbouring Wembley Stadium or SSE Arena. Both venues prefer visitors not to arrive with bags, so now LDO guests can shop safe in the knowledge that whatever they buy will soon be safely winging its way to them while they enjoy the event.
The store-to-door delivery service will be free for the first 3,000 customers to spend £125 at LDO, giving a real helping hand to festive shoppers getting ready for Christmas. The service otherwise costs only £10.50, for delivery of an unlimited number of LDO shopping bags all in one go to customers’ preferred location.
Karin Cabili, Founder and CEO at Dropit, said: “Our service combines with LDO’s keen outlet prices to offer the best of online and instore, with home delivery and no bags to carry. Customers use our simple app and leave their purchases in each LDO store. We gather together all the bags and deliver in one go, with real-time tracking and support available through the app. It’s clear that people still want the personal touch of physical shopping but with increased convenience. At LDO, they will get the best of both – and at outlet prices, too.”
Sue Shepherd, Centre Manager for LDO, said: “LDO is proud to be the first shopping centre in the UK to offer home delivery via Dropit – and for many of our customers it will be absolutely free to use. Our shoppers tend to be young and increasingly international, so this app-based service is perfect. It means they can continue to enjoy our year-round low outlet prices with all the benefits of home delivery. Those guests going to an event at neighbouring Wembley Stadium or The SSE Arena can shop at LDO knowing they don’t need to carry bags into the event. Tourists can shop and enjoy a full day of sightseeing comfortable knowing their shopping bags will be sent to their hotels. It’s all part of our aim to deliver a consistently superior guest experience and is a natural extension to our existing free Shop ‘n’ Drop service.”
To make shopping even easier, LDO will be supporting its Dropit service with a specIal Gift Squad to help visitors find the perfect gifts for their loved ones. Available every weekend in December and in the final few days in the run-up to Christmas, the service will be available to advise shoppers on where best to find those perfect gifts. So whether you’re shopping for a fitness fanatic, gadget geek or beauty buff, LDO has got you covered!
As part of LDO’s mission to make festive shopping special, on selected dates until Christmas Eve visitors will also be able to enjoy beautiful Christmas music as a host of live performances take centre stage. From carol singers and school choirs to brass bands, soul singers and a wonderful Gospel choir, you’re bound to feel festive as you shop, save and stroll to the melodic tunes of LDO’s free Christmas Music.
