Canada Post’s Delivered Tonight same-day delivery service has been used by “thousands” in the Greater Toronto Area and now another retailer is being added to the program – seemingly with gift-giving in mind.
Mastermind Toys has added its name to Best Buy, Future Shop, Indigo and Walmart as a participant in the program. Jon Levy, Co-Founder and CEO at Mastermind Toys had this to say about joining these big-name retailers for Delivered Tonight.
“When Canada Post announced its pilot, we knew we wanted to be part of the initiative,” he said. “As our online business continues to grow, we are happy to be able to offer our loyal customers the best and most convenient delivery options to accommodate their shopping needs during the busy holiday season.”
Upcoming shopping days
You can imagine a parent leaving that perfect gift to final few days before Santa arrives, and this same-day delivery could be a life-saver. As for the success of Delivered Tonight overall, Rod Hart, GM of Product Management and Development at Canada Post told us this:
“Thousands of shoppers from the GTA have experienced the Delivered Tonight service and the reaction so far has been nothing but positive. It will be interesting to see how many more shoppers will take advantage of this service during the holiday season.”
Launched in mid-September, Delivered Tonight is a pilot program that is meant to test the desire for and practicality of same-day shipping in Toronto. Running through Black Friday, Cyber Monday and other major shopping days during the holiday season, the pilot project partners with major retailers to deliver throughout the GTA. Pricing for this delivery service is determined by the retailer.
