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.

    Easy to get around Central London? Is that sarcasm, how about trialling these things somewhere else, as there is life outside of London

    When will Argos be rolling this Shutl scheme out over other areas of the country? Even if they do, I suppose that there's going to a be a limit on which areas it would be practical for, ie: larger urban areas only.

    Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
