Inside Franchise Business: CouriersPlease has opened a pre-Christmas pop-up storeFranchised courier business CouriersPlease (CP) has taken a new approach to customer service and opened a pop-up stand in Westfield Bondi Junction to meet customer demand as the Christmas rush hots up.

The pop-up stand is operating for two weeks between 4-17 December.

CEO of CP Mark McGinley, said: “Our pop-up stand operates like a mini postal store, allowing customers who purchase Christmas gifts from Westfield Bondi Junction stores to bring their presents straight to the CP stand, place them in a CP satchel or small box and ship them anywhere domestically or to 220 countries around the world.

“Christmas is the busiest time of the year, and we want to offer customers competitive pricing and a convenient, hassle-free alternative to sending their presents.”

The partnership with Scentre Group, owner and operator of Westfield in Australia and New Zealand, comes after a recent announcement by CP that customers could now redirect parcels to a parcel locker (POPStation) in their area if they will not be home to receive them. This service is available at 22 Westfield shopping centres across New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland.
