Department store chain Neiman Marcus is ensuring Father’s Day presents get to their recipients on time with a new same-day shipping service.
The retailer is teaming with FedEx in 18 markets to offer speedy deliver for in-stock merchandise. Neiman Marcus will likely come to the aid of some procrastinators, making a deeper connection between store and thankful customer.
Neiman Marcus is offering this service in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Miami, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando, FL, Dallas, Houston and Ft. Worth, TX, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego, CA, Philadelphia, Seattle, St. Louis, and Washington.
This partnership leverages FedEx’s tracking and reliability.
Neiman Marcus will enable same-day shipping through Friday, June 19.
Gift shopping can be stressful, and many consumers turn to stores instead of online for last-minute purchases. However, same-day shipping enables a retailer’s online store to compete with bricks-and-mortar outlets.
For instance, online retailer Net-A-Porter extended its same-day delivery service in the New York area just as consumers were worried about receiving all of their purchased gifts in time.
Net-A-Porter pushed back the cut off time for its same-day delivery to 10 a.m. on Christmas Eve, giving consumers another retail option for their last-minute gift purchases. By offering speedy expedited delivery, Net-A-Porter was able to compete with bricks-and-mortar retailers for the holiday shopping rush in the days before Christmas (see story).Like this article?
