CollectPlus partners with L’Occitane to roll-out brand new Click & Collect and Returns service
L’Occitane has partnered with CollectPlus, the UK’s largest independent store-based delivery and returns service, to allow its customers to collect their online purchases from their local newsagent or convenience store. Customers can Click & Collect online purchases from any of more than 5,800 local convenience stores, newsagents, supermarkets, shopping centres and petrol stations in the CollectPlus network, early ‘til late, seven days a week, at a time that suits them. For the first time, L’Occitane will also be offering free returns to customers through any store in the CollectPlus Network.
L’Occitane will offer a next day and standard delivery option for customers, with pricing which is in line with their home delivery option. The next day Click and Collect service is free for L’Occitane customers who spend £35 or more online, or £5.95 otherwise.
Customers spending over £35 will be able to choose the standard delivery service for free, or else it will cost £3.95 (with orders delivered to the CollectPlus store of the customer’s choice within three days). All L’Occitane customers in the UK will be able to use this service from 11 October 2016.
L’Occitane will offer complimentary wrapping choices for all Click and Collect purchases, either enclosing gift bags or gift wrapping the order for free, depending on the customer’s choice.
Neil Ashworth, CEO at CollectPlus, said: “We are very excited to announce our partnership with L’Occitane, an iconic brand with a time-honoured heritage in the beauty sector. The CollectPlus service has become an invaluable option for many, and our new Click & Collect and Returns service will open up choice and convenience to L’Occitane customers allowing them access to the full product range, wherever they live in the UK.”
Mark Dugdale, Digital and CRM director at L’Occitane, said:
“Delivering an excellent shopping experience to every customer is incredibly important to us at L’Occitane and we are confident that our partnership with CollectPlus will help us continue to do this. The Click & Collect service from CollectPlus gives all of our customers more choice by allowing them to pick up deliveries from a convenient location at a time that suits them and their busy lifestyles.”
