Matches Fashion's chief executive officer Ulric Jerome thinks waiting a day is too long. While many retailers would be envious of the British retailer's ability to deliver same-day, Jerome wants to push the bar further. Soon he wants the shoppers who browse the 420 brands on the Matches site to be able to get their hands on the goods within the hour.
"I think in the next 18 months in major cities, one-hour delivery will be the norm. This is what we're currently working on...and that will be launched soon," Ulric said.
