eBay has revealed plans this week for its same-day delivery service to launch in London via a new partnership with Argos A UK retailer.
eBay and Argos will start a trial in 2014 that will include a least 50 eBay merchants and allows collect from 150 Argos stores in primary locations nationally.
Devin Wenig, President, eBay says; “The distinction between offline and online shopping continues to blur. At eBay we continue to find new ways to connect buyers and sellers. Our mission is connecting people with the things they need and love. Traditional retail isn’t going away; it is transforming.
Smart retailers are innovating, reimagining the store and what it means to shop. We’re proud to join Argos on this journey. Their unique store network and operating model is fit for serving customers in a digital future. This exciting pilot takes us one step nearer to our goal of offering customers an inspired and seamless shopping experience.”
