UK: Debenhams to launch next day delivery
Department store group Debenhams has confirmed it will introduce next day delivery to its customers next year to boost its online business.
The retailer, which currently delivers within 2-4 days, said the launch will help it to achieve its GBP500m (US$772.8m) online sales target in the next three years.

Meanwhile, sales at stores open over a year rose 3.1%, excluding VAT, in the 16 week period. This helped to lift like-for-like sales by 1.2% over the retailer's first half.
