New Doddle store opens at King’s Cross

Click and collect parcel delivery company Doddle has opened a new centre at King’s Cross railway station, one of the UK’s busiest transport hubs.

The firm, a joint venture between Network Rail and entrepreneur Lloyd Dorfman, has a network of delivery and pick up centres for people to pick up and return parcels from a number of e-commerce businesses. It has 38 centres across the UK and plans on expanding to 100 across the UK by the end of the year, with the eventual aim of having 250 stores open by 2017.

The new centre is in King’s Cross Square, enabling commuters and passengers passing through the London Underground station and railway stations at St Pancras International and King’s Cross to pick up and drop off parcels as they pass through the transport hub.

The new Doddle centre is open 7 days a week throughout the year. Opening times are Monday to Friday between 0700 – 2000, Saturday 0900-1700 and Sundays and Bank Holidays between 1000 and 1600.

The business allows people to shop online and collect their goods without waiting in at home or having their goods delivered to their place of work, and takes advantage of the e-commerce market’s move toward click and collect pick up and delivery.
