Shop & Drop Scheme Extends Market Delivery Service

Bury St Edmunds Shop&Drop will be extending its pedal-powered service to the town’s Wednesday Market.

Shop&Drop, operated by EcoCarriers BSE, currently offers a same day delivery from a number of businesses in town as well as from traders on the Saturday market and now it will introduce the Wednesday market. Just call Shop&Drop before 2pm for same day delivery.

A single 35L crate of goods costs £2 for delivery within the town including Moreton Hall, Lark Grange and Marham Park or £4.50 to nearby villages including Great Barton, Horringer and Nowton. It will be delivered by bicycle or cargo-bike by 6pm. The customer pays the rider on delivery (card or cash).

Shop&Drop, which currently has almost a dozen businesses participating in its initial trial, has been supported by West Suffolk Council and Suffolk County Council as well as Our Bury St Edmunds BID.

On Wednesday 26th June Shop & Drop members will be at Marks and Spencer (just one of the retailers on the scheme) on the Buttermarket to tell customers about the service.

Director of Eco Carriers Libby said: “The service is proving successful, with over 150 deliveries made since we started, and we wanted to offer it to people who use the market on Wednesday’s too. Our cargo bikes can carry more than you’d expect, and for £2 we’ll deliver your shopping home to anywhere in Bury, leaving you unencumbered for a stroll round town or a café stop.”

To book a Shop&Drop pick up and delivery call 01284 413441, 07902 477833 or email for more information.
