Tesco: please start doing parcels

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 5 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

I love ByBox, a service which delivers my parcels to convenient local lockers for me to collect, rather than attempting to deliver to my home when I’m out.

But do you know what would be even more convenient than that? A delivery in a two-hour timeslot of my choice (eg a more realistic 9-11pm), like Tesco offers for groceries and Tesco Direct.

It seems like it wouldn’t take much to set up a processing centre like ByBox’s to ship my parcels to, and for Tesco to then internally process these exactly as it does with Direct orders – delivering from my local store in a timeslot of my choice (at a price), or sending them along with my hypothetical groceries, or allowing me to pick up 24hrs a day.

C’mon, Tesco, make this happen, and we’ll hope that all the other supermarkets follow in your wake.
