Test outside, buy at home
The purchasing habits of modern consumers is changing rapidly. E-commerce is taking a bigger chunk of the market every day. People go to a shop to test a product, then purchase it online and have it delivered to their home. Going shopping is becoming more of a leisure activity than a functional purchase moment. And having a car to take the purchases home no longer fits the picture.
Parcel service and Bubble Post
Uplace obviously intends to provide a home delivery service for any purchases made on site. Green initiatives for eco-friendly transport are popping up everywhere. For instance, there is Bubble Post, a company that covers the last few kilometres of transport in town centres by cargo bike. A complete service without any extra environmental impact. A benefit for our future!
