Busiest returns day predicted as 3rd December
CollectPlus has predicted that Monday 3rd December will be the busiest day of the year for shopping returns. The UK's largest independent store based delivery and returns service expects to see the busiest peak in returns as shoppers decide which of the online bargains purchased during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales they will keep and which they will send back.
Comparing returns volumes over cyber weekend in 2017, CollectPlus reported a 12 per cent increase in parcel return volumes in the days following the key shopping dates, with Monday 4th December 2017 seeing the greatest number of returns in-store.
Neil Ashworth, CEO, CollectPlus said: "Black Friday is increasingly an online event so many savvy shoppers head to their favourite retailers' websites to take advantage of the phenomenal deals up for grabs not only on Black Friday, but over the entire Cyber Weekend".
