Hi all,

Is anyone aware of a household delivery scheme that has been set up for a shopping centre or a town centre anywhere?I am looking into the potential of establishing a shopping delivery scheme for a town centre as a means of reducing the need to drive to the shops (carrying shopping home is often cited as a reason for driving), and enabling people to walk, cycle, bus or train in. This would be a delivery scheme that caters for many shops in a town centre, rather than the large supermarkets, many of whom have their own delivery schemes. Ideas on how to sell it to shops as a good idea & incentives for shoppers to use it (rather than just hiking parking costs) would be great!
