Banana Republic is offering exclusive incentives to last minute shoppers beginning December 17 through December 22 at “The Procrastinator’s Event”—the Gap Inc. brand has partnered with local services such as Curb, Deliv, SHYP, and TaskRabbit to help make the holidays an enjoyable experience for customers shopping from Banana Republic through all channels.

Customers visiting Banana Republic in San Francisco, Miami, and New York will not only have the opportunity to select the perfect gifts for loved ones in-store during the event—Banana Republic is presenting shoppers with $25 upon checkout that is immediately valid for items to be giftwrapped in sophisticated fashion and shipped straight from the store to any address across the globe. Banana Republic cashiers will turn over the items to Shyp staff on-hand, preparing gifts for direct shipment.  

During the five day event, provided by Deliv, Banana Republic will be offering free same-day delivery to customers ordering their items online using Reserve In Store in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Seattle, Washington D.C., Palo Alto, and New Jersey —allowing online shoppers to shop from the comfort of their home and conveniently receive their items at their doorstep within a matter of hours.

Every customer that purchases from any U.S. location will be gifted with the opportunity to take advantage of someone else completing their time-consuming chores—Banana Republic will be handing out $30 coupons good for TASKRABBIT, a company that gives customers assistance with house cleaning, running errands, building furniture, and even wrapping Christmas gifts.  Banana Republic will also be connecting shoppers during the event with free and reliable transit from CURB, giving customers $20 in value toward the taxi service when making a trip to or from their closest Banana Republic store—allowing customers to save even more on gas expenses and use it for more important things, such as gift purchasing, during the holiday season.  

“Everyone is busy during the holidays, so we’re here to help treat our customers to perks that make their shopping experience a pleasure,” said Chris Nicklo, VP of Marketing at Banana Republic.
