Can shopping locally also offer free, easy delivery?

It can when you’re shopping in Downtown Sidney!

The Sidney Business Improvement Area Society recently launched Sidney Delivers, a commercial delivery program in partnership with Sidney Courier, a locally owned and operated community courier service.

The initiative is a way to support both local shoppers and local businesses.

Why is it important? According to BC Buy Local, for every $100 spent with a local business, $63 is re-circulated back into the BC economy. The Vancouver Island Economic Authority further notes that every one per cent increase in sales of local products equals 50 jobs.

To enhance shoppers’ options, the program provides free delivery service from downtown Sidney businesses to destinations up to 35-kilometres away.

And what an array of options shoppers have in downtown Sidney! From fine fashion to fabulous footwear, books, toys and pet supplies to gifts and galleries, you have so much to choose from right here.

How does Sidney Delivers work?

  • Businesses are encouraged to advertise to let customers know they’re providing free, two-business-day delivery, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays.
  • Once a customer’s order is received, a delivery request is submitted at sidneybia.ca/sidneydelivers or 250-656-SHIP (7447). Questions? Email hello@sidneybia.ca
  • Orders are carefully packed with a label from Sidney Courier and prepared for pick-up.
  • Once picked up by Sidney Courier, your order will be delivered within two business days at no charge. Note that the cut-off time for pick-ups is 2 p.m. Monday to Friday for same-day delivery service. Two-business-day delivery is guaranteed from the time you place your delivery order to Sidney Courier. Delivery is not available on weekends or holidays and is currently limited to commercial deliveries only – not food or beverages.
