DIY retailer Wickes has upped the ante in click and collect, cutting fulfilment time on selected items to just 30 minutes.
Wickes customers are able to collect their DIY materials across thousands of items including paint, doors, tools, lighting and more in the revamped 30-minute time frame – and still totally free of charge. Shoppers can simply place their order online, wait to receive their SMS or email notification and collect from their preferred store.
The improved collection service is available seven days a week across all 230 Wickes stores across the UK.
The move comes as homewares seller IKEA announces its plans to team up with Tesco to allow click and collect from dedicated IKEA collection points in Tesco car parks and marks the growing shift to collaborations between not only physical and digital arms of retailers, but among non-compete retailers too.
