Shop. Ship. Smile. Program Aims to Lighten the Load for Busy Shoppers
Today, Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc., a leader in the outlet industry, announced its partnership with leading low-cost shipping service, LugLess, to offer busy holiday shoppers the ability to send their purchases from the outlet directly to any domestic address.
The partnership, which will launch at the Tanger Outlets National Harbor location in late November, is designed to give out-of-town shoppers the option of sending their purchases home or directly to their loved ones for the holidays. By enabling customers to shop and ship in just one stop, this innovative service eliminates the time and hassle of making a second trip to the Post Office.
“We’re constantly thinking about ways to enhance the shopping experience for our many loyal customers. Lugless is an innovative way that allows our visitors to shop more without the hassle of having to lug all of their items home,” said Stephen Yalof, President and COO of Tanger Outlets. “Through this partnership, which we have piloted at Tanger Outlets National Harbor, customers can ship their shopping haul home or direct to their gift recipients for the holidays, making shopping while traveling easier than ever before.”
Visitors to Tanger’s National Harbor location can use one of the LugLess+Tanger-branded self-service kiosks at the shopper services suite to take advantage of the Shop. Ship. Smile program. Complimentary boxes and shipping supplies will be available, and customers shipping gifts directly to the recipient will have the option of adding a personalized letter.
“Launching the Shop. Ship. Smile. program with Tanger Outlets allows us to demonstrate the utility and flexibility of the LugLess shipping platform, which is best known for helping travelers to ship luggage and sports equipment ahead when flying,” said Aaron Kirley, President of Lugless. “We’re excited to work with Tanger to allow people to shop more and lug less.”
The service is scheduled to launch on November 20th, 2020. For more information, visit www.lugless.com/tanger
