Argos introduce same-day delivery
We may not have the jet-pack or the silver foil suit or the meal-in-a-pill but we’re all scoffing cloned burgers so that must mean that, people, the future is here.
If that wasn’t enough, get a load of this – Argos are trialing a new delivery service that could see you holding your items in your proud hands in less than 90 minutes after you’ve ordered the wretched goods.
It’s all thanks to the help of Shutl, a whizz-bang new home delivery service that are aiming to revolutionise internet shopping by getting the stuff to you in double-quick time. Of course, the trial will concentrate on the easy-to-get-around area that is central London and will be limited to items that are available for ‘reserve and collect’ in those stores.
But it’s all very modern and sci-fi as punters will be able to track their orders via a GPS map, enabling them to keep an eye on the impending arrival of their new shredder and yell ‘Why is he going THAT way?’ at the screen
Shutl say that the delivery cost will start at just £4.95, which is the same as Argos’ current non-same-day delivery. Ladies and gentlemen, the future.
