Wickes has announced a new one-hour delivery service as it partners with On the dot.
The DIY retailer will become the first in the sector to offer instant delivery service after partnering with City Sprint-owned On the dot.
Aiming to solidify its place in the “go economy” which sees retailers scramble to meet the increasingly instant needs of consumers, Wickes Hourly is offering deliveries nationwide available every day of the week costing a minimum of £9.95.
“We pride ourselves on making our customers’ lives that little bit easier and we’re excited to say we’re the first to market with this new delivery option in our sector,” Wickes supply chain director Duncan Kendal said.
“Whether you need paint or power tools, by partnering with On the dot we have been able to offer a range of home improvement products exactly where and when people need them.”
On the dot chief executive Patrick Gallagher added: “We know that consumers now expect to shop on their terms and it is retailers, like Wickes, who have put convenient delivery at the top of their agenda, that will succeed in retaining and attracting new customers.’’
