Let the virtual shopping spree begin.
The Americans call it ‘cyber Monday’. The 28th November – or the first Monday after Thanksgiving, the first day after just about everyone’s pay day, and the start of a 2 week purchasing frenzy here in the UK.
It refers to the biggest online shopping day of the retail calendar. Markets are bracing themselves for big numbers in the war for consumers’ plastic cash. So the obvious question for us is, how can local retailers, independent traders, wine shops, farm-shops and delis get in on the act? Are there opportunities in ‘cyber-heaven’ for you to offer customers a hamper delivery service of local produce, the likes Amazon could only hope to make as personal? The answer is undoubtedly, yes! But if you do decide to send hampers through the post, what’s the best way to send them? We’ve put together some options for sending hampers as a gift through the post.
