Pick n Pay Couriered by you
New in Added Value: Pick n Pay’s new courier service, run by Berco. Basically, Berco has installed drop boxes at 50 Pick n Pays around the country, with more to follow, and the time-strapped punter can dash in, buy a Drop-Box Retail Pack from the kiosk for a flat fee of R99.99, follow the basic instructions, fold, stick and drop, and Bob is your Uncle in van Reenen, whose birthday you had almost forgotten. It’s an overnight service, with delivery before 10.30am the following day in major centres, and is based on a popular model in the US of A, where one popular business has 40,000 drop boxes all over the show, and Tom Hanks in a beard.
Comment: One size, one price, no account: genius on the part of PnP in the drive to offer convenience to customers, and a sweet deal for Berco too, one imagines.
