Many brands at the outlet are participating in the scheme which offers a carry to car and home delivery shopping service.

Guests can choose to have bags delivered to a location at a convenient time with Dropit providing delivery to homes, hotels and workplaces within Essex.

Shoppers also have the option to collect all their bags with on-site bag collection, or even have their bags delivered to their car if parked in the specially marked bays in the North Car Park.

Josef O’Sullivan, centre director at Braintree Village, said “We are delighted to add Dropit services to our current offering at Braintree Village.

"This service will be particularly helpful this summer, for those guests visiting Essex on a ‘staycation’ and those who want to enjoy our leisure and dining offering bags-free.”

Karin Cabili, founder and CEO of Dropit, added: “We see this partnership with Braintree Village as a great opportunity to provide guests with exceptional customer service, convenience, and comfort that are all tied together with irreplaceable human interactions.”
