Countrywide Farmers, a supplier of products and services to the rural community, is one of the first retailers in the UK to offer Doddle‘s delivery solution to their customers. Online shoppers can now opt to have their Countrywide purchases delivered to a Doddle parcel shop.
Brian McArdle, Online Channel Manager for Countrywide said: “The majority of Countrywide customers are based in the rural community and subsequently spend a great deal of time living and working outside, which proves to be inconvenient when it comes to home deliveries. We have for some time been looking at various solutions to this challenge to ensure customers receive greater flexibility and value when shopping online with Countrywide. Doddle offers a good opportunity to further grow and develop Countrywide’s online offer and operate as a true multichannel rural retailer“.
Online shoppers will be able to use the Doddle service on items weighing under 16 kilograms and packages measuring less than 50x50x40 centimetres in size. Following a successful trial at their pilot shop in Milton Keynes, Doddle will open 300 parcel shops across the UK, the first of which include key locations at London Cannon Street, Brighton, London Waterloo, Three Bridges, Bromley and Chelmsford.
