Shopping just got a whole lot easier with the help of technology. Inventory management, cashless payment, e-commerce and now we are embracing the concept of hands-free shopping. At times, there is a need to purchase bulky or heavy items but it is such a hassle to carry them around especially if you are traveling by public transport. Now don’t you just wish that Fairy Godmother could teleport your goodies away with a wave of her wand?
What is hands-free shopping?
In an effort to make shopping more convenient, hands-free shopping allows you to drop off your bags at a designated collection point and then have it delivered back home at a later time! The whole idea is to give shoppers a hassle-free shopping experience and still have the freedom of moving around despite the bag load. Hands-free shopping is already in practice in Mall of Emirates in Dubai, so read more about it here!
“The unique service is available exclusively at Mall of the Emirates and is designed with every type of shopper in mind — whether you’re a parent strolling the mall with the little ones, a keen shopper looking for some relief, or a tourist looking to have your shopping delivered directly to your hotel at a later time. [The service] takes the strain away while you continue to shop, dine or catch up with friends,” the company said in a statement.
We’ve tried it out!
It was a great pleasure for us to be able to partner with T.Cartel at their Fashionista Fair at Suntec Convention Centre last weekend! In case you missed it, we offered 50 FREE deliveries to all flea market and IT fair shoppers. With this new concept, we foresee that there will no longer be any aching backs or sore arms from carrying groceries or goods.
Here are some thoughts from our customers:
“I’m so glad that I found this Qourier service as my items were heavy and I could not carry it on my own!” — Mdm Yupadee Vivatkiat
“When the Qourier texted me to notify me that he’s coming, I was glad to be able to arrange the delivery timing with him as I was not home yet.” — Mr. Ivan Ng.
“The delivery was so punctual! I’ll definitely use Qourier again should I need to ship parcels or documents on the same day.” — Mr. Bangxian.
