CollectPlus today announce the 5000th store in our network. This rapid growth means that 87% of the UK’s population are now within a mile of a store in urban areas, and 88% are within five miles in rural areas.
CollectPlus uses PayPoint technology to power its parcel service, meaning that we have much more room for network expansion as PayPoint works with over 24,000 convenience retailers in the UK.
We are now processing parcels at a run rate of 7 million a year, the addition of the 5,000th store marks a rapid rate of expansion from just a handful of stores three years ago.
Visvalingam Manivannan, Owner of the Hanging Hill Lane Costcutter in Brentwood, Essex says:“It is very exciting to be named the 5,000th store in the CollectPlus network. We’re delighted to be offering the local community a parcel service that meets the needs of their busy lives. As we provide free parking, using CollectPlus services here couldn’t be easier or more convenient for our customers. The added service also provides a great opportunity for us to attract more customers and grow as a business here in Brentwood.”
