The Entertainer and CityLink have renewed a delivery contract which will see the courier make more than 250,000 toy deliveries this Christmas.

The new deal ‘more than quadruples’ the pair’s original agreement, meaning CityLink will handle the majority of the retail chain’s tracked parcels over the festive period

Duncan Grant, Director of Multichannel at The Entertainer, said: “City Link has proven over the years that they can provide a fast, reliable service to customers, whilst also providing all of the support that our business requires, such as order tracking and scalability.

“As we cater for very young children we rely heavily on our carriers to provide a first-class service and we have built up a huge amount of trust in City Link and are extremely pleased to have expanded our relationship with them as we approach our peak trading period.”

Tim Brown, Sales and Marketing Director at City Link, said: “We are thrilled to be working even more closely with The Entertainer this Christmas.

“To have been appointed as a key carrier partner for a retailer chain such as The Entertainer, is testimony to the levels of service we have been providing and we look forward to bringing Christmas cheer as we continue to strive to achieve the very best all-round service throughout the festive period.”
