Living France - - What's New -

French postal ser­vice com­pany La Poste is now de­liv­er­ing parcels on Sun­days. The com­pany’s de­ci­sion to de­liver on the sev­enth day fol­lows a year-long trial pe­riod in part­ner­ship with e-com­merce web­site Cdis­count, de­liv­er­ing goods across large cities at peak times such as the Christ­mas pe­riod. The de­ci­sion to add an ex­tra de­liv­ery day is in re­sponse to the rapid growth in on­line shop­ping in France, which is now worth €72 bil­lion. The on­line re­tail mar­ket has grown by al­most 15% since 2015 with over 80% of in­ter­net users said to shop on­line. The ser­vice is re­served for goods that peo­ple have or­dered from com­pa­nies and does not ex­tend to parcels from other con­sumers.
