In a move believed to be the first of its kind undertaken by a confectionery specialist, Hancocks is set to offer a nationwide click and collect service.
The service will begin in the north of England, before being rolled out across Hancocks’ 20 cash & carry sites during 2018.
Customers will use the Hancocks website to place their order before being able to collect it at any of the wholesaler’s 20 cash & carry locations.
Wayne Beedle, CEO of the Innovative Bites Group, which includes Hancocks, Bobby’s and Bonds of London, said: “Offering a nationwide click and collect service means that customers will no longer be confined by their location or have to wait on scheduled delivery slots to get their stock to their business seven days a week.”
Established in 1962, Hancocks offers in excess of 5,000 branded and own-label products, with its cash & carry sites spread across the UK, from Dundee to Portsmouth.
