Footwear chain Accent Group launched same-day delivery from some of its Platypus shoe stores in the week ending 27 July. It aims to expand same-day delivery across its 350-store network over the next two months, with its other brands including Athlete’s Foot and Hype DC. Accent’s chief digital officer Mark Teperson said its new service had proven to be quite popular in its first week of operation, and he hopes it will help Accent to ward off competition from Amazon. Amazon offers same-day delivery in some parts of the US, but not yet in Australia.
