Shops Closing - Home Delivery Now Cheaper than Bus Fare into Town
Anyone else noticed this.
I was looking at shoes in a shop based in the next town to me. Delivery was £3.85. If I were to catch a bus it would be £5.00. This has happened several times this year when I've realised it is either cheaper or only 10p more to get an item delivered to my house than go and get a bus. Also that way I don't have to carry the items, waste time waiting for buses, walk, etc. No wonder why shops are closing. There's no point me now going to the next town at all as it more expensive than online delivery. I wonder if this is one of the reasons why shops are closing down.
