Our brilliant city is undoubtedly one of the best places to shop on the planet; London’s designers are more experimental than their cousins across the pond, or across the channel, where chic style still reigns supreme. And matching our gloriously exciting fashion scene are busy, hectic-as-expletive shopping streets.
However, wandering down – or rather, fighting through the crowds on – Oxford Street or Regent Street is not a pleasant experience, for you or for the people you're shoving past, arms laden with bags full of presents. This is where Dropit comes in. Partnering with a wealth of shops in central London, it provides a hands-free (and world first!) shopping experience. From all of the lovely things you've picked up in Liberty, to the shiny skirts and charming homewares in Antropologie, and the Christmas knits and cosy coats in Gap, you just drop your chock-a-block shopping bags off in one of the partner stores and as if by Christmas magic they'll arrive at your home within 24 hours – whether it’s in Edinburgh or Epping. And the best bit? It only costs a tenner for a one-day pass. All of which means that you can go from shop to shop carrying only the weight of guilt from having spent your rent on shoes.
This is how you do it in three easy steps (and save 50 percent at the same time):
1) Download the Dropit app either the Apple App Store or Google Play
2) Enter the code TIMEOUT into the 'I have a promo code' page
3) Now enjoy the world of hands-free shopping!
