Purolator's self-serve Quick Stop Kiosk is the first of its kind in Canada with a pilot at CF Toronto Eaton Centre
TORONTO, Dec. 2, 2019 /CNW/ - Purolator has unveiled Canada's first self-serve Quick Stop Kiosk, making holiday shopping easier and getting packages where they need to go, on time and hassle free. Located at CF Toronto Eaton Centre, North America's busiest shopping centre, Purolator's Quick Stop Kiosk allows shoppers to buy gifts and ship them to their destinations all in one convenient location.
"We're excited to be the first company in Canada to bring this revolutionary level of consumer experience to shoppers through Purolator's Quick Stop Kiosk," said John Ferguson, President and CEO, Purolator. "We're thrilled to partner with Cadillac Fairview and Ravel by CF to provide consumers a convenient and seamless experience that makes their busy lives easier."
"We're thrilled to partner with Purolator to bring this innovative and first-to-market Quick Stop Kiosk to CF Toronto Eaton Centre, just in time for the busy holiday shopping season," said Jose Ribau, Executive Vice President, Digital and Innovation, Cadillac Fairview. "Our holiday programming is focused on providing shoppers with inspiration and efficiency and this unique concept helps us support guests throughout their shopping journey—from discovery right to delivery."
One of the many benefits of Purolator's Quick Stop Kiosk is its convenience. Within minutes, consumers can prepare and ship their packages directly from the CF Toronto Eaton Centre. Shoppers simply create their shipping label; pay with debit, credit, Apple or Google Pay; place their package into the unit; and print a receipt for tracking. Purolator account customers can also drop off their prepaid Purolator shipments to save time.
Special Canadian-themed boxes available for customers
As part of the pilot, Purolator is hosting a holiday pop-up event at the Quick Stop Kiosk in CF Toronto Eaton Centre on Dec. 10, 2019, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Limited-edition collector holiday shipping boxes, designed by Canadian artist Sarah Skrlj, will be available for customizing. Shoppers can choose from one of four designs, each representing a different iconic Canadian landscape, and personalize them with their own unique touches. The beautifully designed boxes allow customers to skip gift wrapping altogether and deliver their gifts directly from store to tree.
The self-serve kiosk will be piloted at CF Toronto Eaton Centre until Dec. 29 as one of a number of ways Purolator is expanding its peak-time service this holiday season.
