myHermes expands in the south with Co-op

Hermes has teamed up with the Southern Co-operative, to launch myHermes ParcelShops, in 49 community stores throughout the south of England.

Having become the most recent convenience retailer to join the myHermes network, Southern Co-op has selected stores in Berkshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Somerset, Surrey, Sussex, Devon, Bristol, and Wiltshire, to be part of the scheme.

These stores will now extend their opening times, to meet local customer demand.

“The myHermes ParcelShop proposition is not only designed to add to our offering for customers, but deliver real benefits to our stores,” said head of category and trading at Southern Co-operative, Paul Bye.

“This includes an added revenue stream, greater awareness in the neighbourhood, increased footfall and overall basket spend.”

Hermes expects to expand its myHermes network to more than 3,000 sites this year.
