Click and Collect Boost for Wrexham Shopping Centre


While many predicted that online sales would sound the death knell of traditional bricks and mortar shopping, major stores at the Eagles Meadow in Wrexham say their sales have been given a healthy shot in the arm by Click and Collect.

Retailers say more and more customers order online and picking up their purchases in store, often the next day.

Andy Smethurst, operations manager of the big Debenhams store, revealed that their Click and Collect operation had grown by as much as 20 per cent in just the past year.

Store bosses said that new lower parking fees announced at Eagles Meadow to widespread acclaim late last year were also making it easier for people to collect their internet purchases. And centre bosses confirmed that the number of car parking was up by 30 per cent.
