A new collection service has opened at Sainsbury’s stores in Newport and Cowes enabling customers to pick up eBay purchases they’ve made online.
Customers will also be able to pick up their Tu clothing and DPD parcel deliveries from the store, making their lives easier and freeing up valuable time.
Tablets will be available to enable customers to ‘check in’ digitally, which will significantly speed up the time it takes from arriving in store to receiving parcels for collection.
The move comes after Sainsbury’s acquired Home Retail Group, which owns Argos and has an exclusive Click & Collect partnership with eBay.
The powerful combination of Sainsbury’s and Argos’ store network, plus the incredible selection from eBay’s marketplace, enables customers to shop conveniently through different online, mobile and store channels.
It will also give customers more choice across different product ranges, creating the UK’s largest non-food retailer and helping them to shop whenever and wherever they want.
David Mills, Head of Property Communications at Sainsbury’s said:
“The new service is great news for customers, who are looking for easier, more convenient ways to shop.
“Customers are increasingly choosing Click and Collect as a delivery option and the new collection point will serve as a one-stop destination for people wanting to collect online orders while they do the rest of their shopping.”
Tanya Lawler, UK Vice President, eBay, said:
“Building upon our exclusive Click and Collect partnership with Argos, by establishing further collection points in Sainsbury’s stores means even greater choice and convenience for shoppers.”
