New shopping service, Dropit, launched this month, offering customers same-day delivery from a store to their homes.
First unveiled at Regent Street’s Summer Street Festival on 19 July, the Dropit service allows people to make a purchase without having to conduct the rest of their shopping trip burdened by bags.
Dropit aims to make Regent Street the first “hands-free” street in the UK, and the launch day saw a number of shoppers take out trials and make enquiries about the new offering.
Karin Cabili, Dropit founder, commented: “Whether you shop at Armani, Gap, Burberry, Hunter or Uniqlo, Dropit revitalises the retail experience and allows the serious shopper to lighten their load and carry on shopping without their bags.”
How to Dropit…
Use the Dropit mobile app to see which of your favourite shops offers the service, helping you to plan your shopping route. Buy up big and then leave your shopping either in store or at one of the Dropit points located along Regent Street. Your bags will then be delivered to your home, hotel or office at a time convenient for you.
Stop by one of the Dropit points or request the service in-store. Then set up your own profile via the app, simply fill in your home or hotel information and purchase Dropit credits so you can save time while enjoying a new bag-free shopping experience. Users can choose to purchase a single drop, a day pass or a three-day pass.
Track your bags using the app or select to receive status updates of your delivery via push notifications and email.
Your bags are delivered to your home or hotel on the same-day or the following evening depending on what suits your shopping style.
