Indigo To Offer Same Day Delivery in Greater Toronto

Canada’s largest book retailer, Chapters/Indigo is offering customers in the greater Toronto area same day shipping on parcels up to 4 lbs, if the order is placed by 12:30 PM, and the customer is willing to pay a $13.95 premium for the service. The company is one of four working with Canada Post on the program which is called Delivered Tonight. The others are Walmart.ca, Best Buy and Future Shop. Cutoff times and customer charges vary with each company, at Walmart the service is being offered free until Christmas. At Chapters/Indigo, the program is called Quick Ship. For its part, Canada Post pledges to deliver items between 5:30 and 9:00 PM. In the U.S. companies like eBay and Amazon have similar programs in “densely populated cities like New York and San Francisco to deliver everything from groceries, toys and flat-screen TVs.” Canada Post will decide in the first few months of 2014 whether to expand the program to other markets.
