Futureshop.ca, the online presence of Canadian specialty chain Future Shop, is offering free ground shipping anywhere in Canada 365 days a year on everything, the site announced today.
"Future Shop is committed to ensuring that customers get more value from their online shopping experiences," says Rick Lotman, SVP, merchandising & marketing for Future Shop. "It's great to be able to deliver on that promise by extending our free shipping offer to every product that we offer, every day of the year."
Future Shop execs hope the move will help grow sales and traffic to the site this year. The site offers 40,000 consumer electronics and related products plus product features, reviews and shopping. Purchases are covered by Future Shop's Lowest Price Guarantee.
The site is the latest to offer free shipping in a bid for online retail market share. Amazon.com and Buy.com both offer free shipping.
