Entertainment retailer hmv has partnered with Click & Collect provider HubBox to add 4,200 local collect points to their delivery offering.
Founded in 1921, today hmv is the biggest seller of physical music in the UK, bolstered significantly by the increased appetite for vinyl from both new and old artists; 2017 was the biggest year of sales for vinyl since the 1980’s.
With the new HubBox integration, hmv’s customers will be able to pick up their CDs, DVDs and video games from over 4,200 HubBox locations across the UK, as well as from hmv’s own stores.
The addition of the new delivery option is part of a wider initiative to ensure that customers are having the most convenient and seamless experience when they shop online.
hmv are responding to the latest research, which shows that nearly three quarters of customers would like the option to pick up their order from a local collection point (IMRG). Additionally, 56% of online shoppers rated delivery choice as the most important factor when deciding whether to make a purchase from an online retailer, according to a study conducted by PostNord in 2017.
