Do it Best tries in-store package-delivery centers
Package delivery network Kinek, which operates locations inside about 1,000 grocers, hardware stores, pharmacies and other spots, announced Do it Best has signed up to participate.
Kinek provides convenience to the customer, who can arrange to pick up all kinds of package deliveries at one of its delivery centers, called KinekPoints.
According to the San Francisco-based company, Kinek is an e-tailer and courier agnostic, which allows customers to have packages shipped from any website, retail outlet or individual in the world to a KinekPoint of their choice. Kinek integrates with all retailer logistics services to ensure secure delivery to the recipient's requested KinekPoint, where the package is held until it's ready for pickup.
In addition to announcing Do it Best's involvement, Kinek said Med-Fast and StorageMart locations have also joined the network.
"People are frustrated with how traditional delivery services either require you to take time off work to sign for a package or leave valuable parcels unattended on doorsteps or in apartment lobbies," said Kerry McLellan, CEO, Kinek, in a press release. "KinekPoints gives customers a more convenient and secure way to receive packages, while introducing them to local businesses they might have otherwise missed."
