New! Free delivery when you collect from the store

Wonder how much the Advertising agency was paid to dream that one up.

Nothing wrong with it, the stock will still need to be delivered to store and it will be delivered foc.

One of my local fast food shops offers free delivery but a discount if you collect from the shop!

Re: Whats this - Debenhams

The point is that it might not be at the shop you want to collect it from, but they will take it there for free - ready for you to collect.
Alternatively you can pay to have it delivered to an address of your choice.
I don't *really* see what the confusion is - its a pretty commonly offered service IME.

It's just the way it reads on the face of it.
I showed it to a couple of people and they also found it funny as it reads.

"No delivery charge if you collect from store" would have been somewhat better.

Do you really think it wise to declare such an 'interest' in a public forum Jim Wink Cheesy

If my experience of Debenhams is anything to go by it will also be way inferior in quality.
