AT HOME GROUP PARTNERS WITH PICKUP TO LAUNCH CONTACTLESS NEXT-DAY LOCAL DELIVERY
The Texas-based At Home is accelerating its omnichannel strategy, offering contactless next-day local delivery of a full assortment of home décor and furniture.
PLANO, Texas -- At Home Group Inc. (NYSE: HOME), the home décor superstore, today announced the company has expanded its partnership with PICKUP, a last-mile logistics service, to offer contactless next-day local delivery of a full assortment of home décor and furniture.
As of March 30, customers are able to order At Home products for delivery from 106 stores, with the service to be rolled out to 125 stores subject to local and state mandates. Next-day delivery starts at $10 and customers can place an order online or by calling their local At Home store.
Lee Bird, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, "Now more than ever due to COVID-19, customers are more comfortable having items delivered directly to their homes when shopping. We are taking our long-term vision of expanding our omnichannel capabilities and accelerating the rollout of new services, while also prioritizing the health and safety of our employees and customers during these unprecedented times."
Home delivery is the next phase in the acceleration of At Home's omnichannel strategy. At Home rolled out a buy-online-pickup-in-store pilot to 28 stores this past January, with initial plans to expand to more markets later in the year. The company has now expedited the expansion of these capabilities to reach over 100 stores in April, as allowed by local and state mandates. In addition, as previously announced At Home launched curbside pickup at a majority of its locations earlier this month.
"We have been developing and testing the pilot phase for our omnichannel offerings for over a year, and I'm extremely pleased with our team's quick pivot to accelerate our plans," continued Bird. "Home delivery is yet another fantastic example of our team's ability to act nimbly to serve our customers in new, innovative ways. Our omnichannel offerings leverage the strength of At Home's existing footprint and in-store inventory to allow our customers to shop however they want."
