Currys and PC World now offer same-day delivery to impulsive UK tech shoppers

Brits who can't stand waiting for gadget purchases can swing by a Currys or PC World to pick them up immediately, but that also requires the hassle of visiting a big-box store. As of today, impulse buyers won't have to brave that gauntlet: both Currys and PC World are offering same-day delivery for online orders. UK residents buying small gadgets from either shop before 9:30AM can spend £15 ($23) to have the goods reach their door by 10PM that night. The stores are also offering Sunday afternoon deliveries at similar pricing, and the £5 ($8) next-day option now includes all orders made before midnight. Extra-speedy shipments are initially limited to those in greater London and a handful of other post codes, but the retailers promise wider availability in the near future.

Currys & PC World Announce New Delivery Services

07 Aug 2013

Tuesday, August 6th Currys & PC World, the UK's leading electrical retailers, have today announced new delivery services updates in partnership with Royal Mail Courier Service; including Same Day, Next Day, Sunday deliveries for small box deliveries*. Services will be available on over 362 days of year, apart from Christmas Day, Easter Sunday and New Year's Day.

A Same Day delivery service will be introduced for orders placed before 9:30am, with delivery to the customers between 6:30pm and 10:00pm.

Next Day delivery will be available for orders placed before midnight, with delivery to the customer between 6:30pm and 10:00pm (the following day). Previously, only orders placed before 5pm qualified for the Next Day delivery service, so this is a significant enhancement to Currys & PC World's proposition.

Sunday deliveries will also be introduced, catering to those customers who prefer to receive their orders on weekends. Currys & PC World currently offer Saturday-only delivery; however a Sunday proposition with delivery between 2:30pm and 6:00pm will allow for more flexibility, suiting customers' busy 21st century lives.

All services** will launch in London, Greater London and other selected post codes with the aim to expand to other areas of the country in the short-term.

Sameday and Sunday deliveries are priced at £14.99. Next day delivery starts from £4.99.
