Luxury online retailers Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter are to offer its top customers, dubbed ‘Extremely Important People’ with enhanced personal shopping services from September 2017.
Timed to coincide with the autumn/winter shopping season, the personal shopping options will include a new “you try, we wait” same-day delivery service in London, which will be followed by New York and Hong Kong before the end of the year, as well as at-home shopping consultations.
‘Extremely Important People’ customers will be able to request through their personal shopper to try on their order in the comfort of their home, while the courier waits so anything to be returned can be collected immediately.
The personalise one-to-one home shopping consultations will see ‘Extremely Important People’ receiving a curated selection of product and they will only be invoiced only for the items they choose to keep. This service will be available to customers in London, New York, Hong Kong and Los Angeles from September 2017 onward.
