Barnardo’s tests out Parcelly service
Parcelly’s Click and Collect service is now available in 90 Barnardo’s stores across Birmingham and Liverpool, with further expansion into Manchester scheduled for the second week of June, and a nationwide roll-out in the coming few months.
The partnership will expand Parcelly’s location network to almost 2,000 outlets across the country. “We’re delighted to enter this trial with Parcelly, giving the communities involved the chance to collect their parcels at their local Barnardo’s store. As our lives become busier, it’s all about convenience, which is what we’ll be offering when you download the app and start using the service. Whilst you’re collecting parcels, it’s worth having a look at our great range of pre-loved and new goods, as well as dropping off any pre-loved items you no longer need,” says Roy Clark, Director of Barnardo’s Retail & Trading
Parcelly CEO, Sebastian Steinhauser, comments: “Parcelly is known for its innovative approach, converting redundant space in local businesses into carrier and retailer agnostic parcel storage. But we’re also recognised for our social and environmental impact and this partnership allows us to combine both. We’re extremely excited to work with Barnardo’s, one of the most iconic charity brands in the UK. We are also looking forward to be introducing a number of new services in the upcoming weeks, which will add a completely new CSR element to the traditional Click and Collect model.”
