ShopAppy Stevenage offers Box Bike Delivery service

02 Jul 2019

Online shopping application ShopAppy is adding a new service in partnership with Box Bike Delivery to deliver shopping throughout Stevenage.

When people order items online through the ShopAppy app they can either choose to click and collect instore at one of the 34 different independent stores signed up to the service, or at one of the click and collect points in the town centre (Westgate Centre or Gordon Craig Theatre) for free.

If they choose to use Box Bike, however, the firm will contact the customer to arrange a delivery at their convenience to either their home or office within Stevenage. There will be a small delivery fee of £4, which is paid directly to Box Bike.

The service will be available until 6pm, Monday to Saturday. Deliveries can also be given to a neighbour or put in a designated safe place if required.

ShopAppy and Box Bike will be launching the new offering in the town square on Saturday 20 July from 11am – 1:30pm. Free £10 ShopAppy vouchers will be on offer (for the first 50 signed up) as well as further information about the scheme.

Marcus Vere, owner of Box Bike Delivery, commented: “We're really pleased to be partnering with ShopAppy and Stevenage Borough Council in providing this unique delivery option for ShopAppy businesses and customers. We already successfully deliver hundreds of items each week to customers across the town, and are looking forward to using our reliable and green 'box bikes' for those times when delivery is the preferred option."

Jackie Mulligan, Founder and CEO of ShopAppy added: “We are very excited to be working with Stevenage Borough Council and Box Bike Delivery to test this new service which brings another environmentally-friendly way people can support local businesses and their own town centre even if they are busy. Stevenage has such a wide variety of businesses and this new delivery element will enable people who live or work within Stevenage (including Great Ashby) to get easy delivery and convenience with a local conscience.”
