Ladies you know the struggle. The struggle is real. Payday shopping on Regent Street means heavy bags, chipped nails, arm ache and endless apologies to passers by as you squeeze (slash, heavily push) past them laden down with your shopping, knocking everyone out of the way en route. Any fashionista knows that every shopping trip needs at least one coffee stop too (or at least one cocktail stop at Aqua in Argyll Street if you’re me) and the hassle caused when you’re carrying your harvest of the high street to your table is well documented (you should read some of my dear diary moments).
Well people, things are about to get serious. This Sunday (July 19), there is a brand new shopping service launching at Regent Street called DropIt. Dropit is a revolutionary shopping service that offers same-day delivery from the store to your door and aims to make Regent Street the first hands-free street in the UK! So girls, no more cabs home with your Armani! Forget lugging around all of your bags, drop them at a participating retailer or at a Dropit point and receive same day delivery at a time of your choice. (OMG, Regent Street is about to become bag-free)! Warning! Lightening your load may cause extreme shopping.
This weekend, visitors to the Dropit event space will be entertained by hot new talent DJ Jade and surprised by impromptu dance performances, while true shopaholics will be able to capture their shopping joy at the various photo opportunities located in the Dropit zone.
How do you Dropit?
Use the Dropit mobile app to see which of your favourite shops offers the service, helping you to plan your shopping route. Buy up big and then leave your shopping either in store or at one of the Dropit points located along Regent Street. Your bags will then be delivered to your home, hotel or office at a time convenient for you.
Stop by one of the Dropit points or request the service in-store. Then set up your own profile via the app, simply fill in your home or hotel information and purchase Dropit credits so you can save time while enjoying a new bag-free shopping experience. Users can choose to purchase a single drop, a day pass or a three-day pass.
Track your bags using the app or select to receive status updates of your delivery via push notifications and email.
