Online commerce is booming. Parcel flood is increasing. Also thanks to the wholesalers and their parcel services. In Coop this is called Pick-up, in Migros it is called PickMup.
Each of the retail giants is constantly expanding their online business. So you can have the orders delivered to the store near you instead of having it delivered to your home. The only condition: The branch must belong to the respective wholesaler’s realm.
Take Migros, for example: a book ordered from ex-libris can be had at Quartier-Migros. A vacuum cleaner purchased from Melectronics is being delivered to Migrolino, which is on its way home. There are collection boxes with sections of various sizes available in stores.
Outdoor collection boxes will be available in 2022
Migros now has 700 relocation sites across Switzerland. Now it wants to expand significantly with the so-called self-service boxes in Migros branches. This eliminates the queue and waiting until someone can deliver the package. Another 70 self-serve boxes will be added by the end of the year.
Furthermore it. External collection boxes will be added next year. The idea behind it: Customers are no longer tied to store opening hours and can receive their orders at any time. All wholesaler’s pick-up stations also serve as return points.
Major distributors are not only expanding their parcel service. Swiss Post also maintains a network of purported MyPost24 stations. They are in parking lots or near retailers – most are conveniently located. (ur)
