Right this is the best idea since they invented handles for bags!
This Christmas, Dublin City Business Improvement District has teamed up with An Post and Dublin Bus to offer the ultimate in Christmas shopping convenience with their Shop and Drop free bag-minding service. Shop and Drop allows shoppers to drop off cumbersome shopping bags at locations in the GPO Arcade on Henry Street and on the 3rd floor of the St. StephensGreen shopping centre, to be stored completely free of charge.
Their Christmas bounty can then be picked up the next day or delivered right to their door by An Post, leaving city visitors free to continue their shopping or take in the city’s festive fun. As an added treat, the first 100 lucky Shop and Drop customers who select this option will be offered delivery free of charge, saving them even more and adding some extra sparkle to their Christmas.
A key benefits of this handy service is that shoppers can use one of the city’s great public transport options without being laden down with shopping bags. Running from Thursdays through to Mondays until Monday, 19th December (Mondays open for collection only), Shop and Drop will take the stress out of shopping in the city and bring the fun back tothe Christmas shopping experience.
