Currys and PC World have announced the launch of a gadget gift trolley trial which will take place on Wednesday 19th December as they look to rescue last minute Christmas shoppers.
Commuters and those traveling home for Christmas on the East Midlands Trains service from London St Pancras to Nottingham will be able to purchase top gadget gifts directly from the trolley including iPads, Beats headphones and the ‘Paperwhite’ Kindle, as well as holiday essentials such as spare batteries and memory cards.
This comes as Tablets are already proving to be a huge seller this year for Currys and PC World with one sold every second on Mega Monday, and the retailer predicts continued sales of one sold every two seconds between now and Christmas.
Consequently, tablets including the new iPad, iPad Mini and Google Nexus 7 will be on the trolley for commuters. Stocking filler gifts will also be available to take away, such as ‘Hear muffs’ (earmuff headphones), Kindle and iPad cases, and iPod Nanos.
The trolley service will run alongside the train’s standard refreshments trolley allowing passengers to purchase tea ‘n’ tablets. The trial is part of Currys and PC World’s Christmas campaign to inspire shoppers with exciting gift ideas and, if popular, may be built upon next year.
