TORONTO, Nov. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Santa just got an extra hand this holiday
season, with Mastermind Toys, Canada's largest specialty toy retailer,
joining the select group of retailers offering GTA online shoppers the
choice to have their items delivered on the same day they were ordered.
For a premium, online shoppers from Brampton to Markham will receive
their gift-wrapped toys between 5:30 and 9 p.m. that same evening.
"The timing couldn't be better for Mastermind Toys to join the Delivered
Tonight pilot. With the holidays right around the corner, it can help
busy parents focus on important activities with their families and
friends while we take care of delivering their items that evening,"
says René Desmarais, Senior Vice-President, Parcels, at Canada Post.
Delivered Tonight is a pilot initiative launched on September 17 by
Canada Post and a group of leading online retailers including Best Buy,
Future Shop, Indigo and Walmart to better understand the growing needs
of online shoppers and the logistics required to fulfill and deliver
items on the same day.
"When Canada Post announced its pilot, we knew we wanted to be part of
the initiative," says Jon Levy, Co-Founder and CEO, Mastermind Toys.
"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."
For the past two months, the Delivered Tonight pilot has been running
smoothly and, as the holiday shopping season gets under way, demand for
the service has been growing.
