Office supply giant jumps into same-day delivery
Office Depot is launching a same-day delivery program in three markets.
The service, powered by Deliv, will be available on August 28 in Atlanta and Los Angeles, and on September 6 in Ft. Lauderdale/Miami. It is expected to be rolled out in several additional markets by the end of December.
Customers who shop the retailer's e-commerce site will have the option of scheduled same-day delivery between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. or 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., depending upon the time of day they shop. For a limited time, Office Depot plans to waive the delivery fee as an introductory offer.
“To exceed our customers' increasing expectations, we continue to enhance our omnichannel shopping experience," said Kevin Moffitt, senior VP and chief digital officer at Office Depot. "Adding same-day delivery capabilities to our growing in-store pickup and ship-from-store programs allows us to better leverage our retail locations as distribution hubs, and serve our customers faster and more efficiently
Deliv’s technology enables Office Depot customers to select the delivery times and locations that work best for them and track their purchases in real-time.
