One of the leading online parcel delivery firms, Parcel2Go, has called on consumers to help get the country’s economy back on track by supporting British businesses.
The Office for National Statistics announced last week that the UK economy had gone back into recession, leading to calls for people to be more patriotic when they are making purchases. Parcel2Go has added its voice to the campaign and encouraged shoppers to do what they can to help support British firms.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Bolton-based Parcel2Go, said: “It’s more important than ever that we buy products made in Britain and support British businesses. The internet has made it simple to purchase products from all over the UK, and if companies use the services of reliable courier firms then items can be with consumers extremely quickly.
“As has been said by other retail industry commentators, UK firms also need to make sure that they are promoting themselves and their products properly and ensuring potential customers know if their goods are made in Britain.”
With the London 2012 Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations both falling within a short space of time, businesses have been advised to do everything possible to make the most of the patriotic mood sweeping across the UK.
Parcel2Go works with a huge variety of British businesses to organise delivery of their products to addresses all over the UK on a daily basis. The company helps individuals and British businesses to deliver more than two million domestic and international parcel consignments every year with the assistance of industry-leading couriers including Parcelforce and City Link.
