Pedestrian ‘drives’ in France

November 27th, 2018 | Posted by Richard Hall in Richard Hall

These aren’t the contradiction they sound like, but they are a curious phenomenon.

France may be the most advanced market in the world for click and collect, with several thousand dedicated drive-in collection outlets.

Now French supermarket chains are introducing city centre walk-in collection outlets. The first was opened in 2016.

It seems they are generally quite small at under 200 square metres, offer a good range at attractive prices and receive deliveries from picking centres four times a day.

The latest to be opened, by Auchan in Lille, is said to expect 800 orders a week at an average of 40 euros.

Convenience comes ever closer.
