Confectionery specialist Hancocks has overhauled its delivery structure to offer customers a free delivery service across the majority of the UK when they spend more than £150*.
Mark Watson, Hancocks CEO said: “Delivery is a real cost to bear and we know that many customers see it as a barrier to purchase. We’ve therefore worked to achieve a scenario where we can offer free delivery across the majority of the UK so long as a certain order size is placed. Our customers are telling us that this is a very positive move and will enable them to top up their confectionery supplies more freely from Hancocks.co.uk.”
Watson added that the Hancock’s e-commerce website is going from strength-to-strength, stocking more than 2,000 products and serving many thousands of businesses with sales growing by 65% year-on-year, with the seasonal buying period experiencing a particularly high peak and expected to continue throughout November.
*Free delivery on confectionery orders over £150 (ex. VAT) to Zone 1 (England, Wales and parts of Scotland). If drinks are purchased, there is a £40 surcharge, which is waived on orders over £500 (ex. VAT). Confectionery orders below £150 will be charged £10 delivery. Zones 2 amp;3 (Highlands amp; Islands, Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, Isles of Scilly, Southern Ireland) are charged slightly differently.
