Same-day delivery tested in Toronto

  • Print

TORONTO -- Four major retail brands and Canada Post are launching a same-day delivery service for online orders in the Toronto area.

The Delivered Tonight e-commerce service is a pilot project with Best Buy, Future Shop, Indigo and Walmart.

The Crown corporation provided few details in its announcement Tuesday.

However, reports in local newspapers say the service generally aims to deliver parcels between 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. if they're ordered by 12:30 p.m.

The cut-off times for orders and prices will vary by retailer.

Walmart.ca is testing the service by upgrading some orders placed before 11:30 a.m. to free same-day delivery. The other three will charge $13.95 per order for same-day delivery, with cutoff times varying between 11 a.m. for Best Buy and Future Shop and 12:30 p.m. for Indigo.
