Foot Locker joins same-day delivery game
For an extra $5.00, Foot Locker customers in Los Angeles and San Francisco can order athletic footwear and other sports apparel online or in the nearby stores and have it delivered that day.
Delivery startup Deliv, which is increasingly partnering with e-retailers, physical stores, and malls to offer same-day delivery, will provide the service for Foot Locker.
The retailer plans to expand same-day delivery to all of its North American stores.
Same-day delivery continues to flourish as a way to provide online shoppers with the kind of immediate gratification they find at brick-and-mortar stores. The $5 delivery fee is an appealing price point, which beats some retailers’ shipping costs for online orders at any speed.
