Of the depots which I have managed in the past the first time delivery rates range between 93% - 95%. A lot depends on the area a depot covers, rural depots tend to have a lower first time delivery rate.

I'm staggered that it's that high. I guess my status as a young unmarried unchilded worker has skewed my perspective a bit. I can't remember the last time I was in to sign for a delivery.

My local supermarket has one of those drop-off machines but I'm yet to see someone use it in the year or so it's been there. A lot of people get stuff delivered to work these days it seems.

END opening up in Glasgow is brilliance by them as there isn't much in the way of good clothing stores at all. Decent amount of streetwear and not much else.

I would say it must be about 50/50 at most between UK and overseas orders. US and EU can get a lot of the brands on their own patch or for cheaper from Japan/US.

They have been bulking up heavily on 'high-end' like Margiela etc. in anticipation of this store having a high-end floor from what I've heard.

DPD has never failed me. I've usually had it delivered to biz addresses, they are super accurate with hour time-window. Great service. Once had a package delivered to my home on a Sunday, after ordering on Friday.

From a EU based customer point of view i always thought that most of their business was in the Uk as their prices in € are much higher than most EU based retailers (due also to the strong £) as are their shipping rates. In addition to that you pay for returns so that's not appealing. Even when they put out a discount code, factoring in €\£ exchage rate and shipping costs there's not much left.

A menswear store having clueless good looking girls serving is a sure fire sales guarantee. If a nice looking girl tells you something looks good on you 99% of the time you will most likely buy said item. Plus it's better than always having to deal with smarmy bastards that some of these high end stores seem to employ country wide.

A massive department store chockablock with just menswear and brands you might want to buy - whats not to like? I think I would enjoy the shopping experience there compared to anywhere else outside of London.

As long as they know how to tape a box and print off a tracking label, I'm not too bothered.

Except fukers who are probably only in the store to try something on before the Sale / code season.

I'm not sure why I'd need obtain a restraining order against The End store perhaps to stop them from selling to the likes of your ikea furnished torn arsehole.

the saint laurent product outfit photos are horrendous - is someone really being paid to put those outfits together?
