“It’s been an incredibly exciting launch to work on.”
B&M has announced that it will be trialling a home delivery service across the UK, reports The Manc.
For the first time since the discount retailer opened its doors back in 1978, B&M has decided to expand its website and introduce a delivery service option for customers that’s primarily catered to delivering a range of heavier general products that shoppers may struggle to transport for themselves.
Around 1,000 products make up the new online delivery range – including garden and indoor furniture, electrical equipment, and some toys and games too.
To make the most of the new service and try it out for size, shoppers will just need to look for the items on the B&M website that are marked with home delivery and click ‘add to basket’, before arranging for them to be delivered.
Delivery costs will depend on the size of your order, with a regular delivery priced at £3.95, medium £7.95, and large £14.95.
Orders will take between three and seven working days to be delivered.
B&M says the trial is being run on a “test and learn”, and customer response will be “closely monitored” over the coming months.
Speaking on the launch of the trial, Jens Sorensen – Digital Director at B&M – said: “We are incredibly excited to launch our online deliver-to-home service and make life easier for customers that love the range of discounted products from B&M but haven’t been able to purchase from store.
“We’re continually developing and improving the offering available to customers, and creating this more accessible shopping experience is a fantastic step forward for the business.
“It’s been an incredibly exciting launch to work on and we’re so happy that customers are now able to start using the transactional website and have access to products they wouldn’t have been able to in the past.”
B&M’s CEO Simon Arora says he believes the trial of home delivery to be “an attractive proposition for customers”.
He added that the business is also being “open-minded” about delivery becoming permanent.
