British Land re-charges shoppers’ batteries
Published: 26 November, 2014
British Land is launching the ChargeBox service at a selection of its shopping centres and retail parks following a successful trial.
The new service provides consumers with a free and secure way to charge their phones while shopping - the ChargeBox lockers can be used for half an hour at a time, charging devices by an average of 40 per cent – and is part of British Land’s continued drive to provide added services to its customers.
ChargeBox stations have been trialled at Meadowhall in Sheffield, Drake Circus in Plymouth, St Stephen’s shopping centre in Hull, Broughton Shopping Park in Chester and Teesside Shopping Park in Stockton-on-Tees. The Meadowhall station notched up thousands of charges with an average of 60 charges per day.
Claire Barber, head of shopping centre asset management for British Land, said: “The ChargeBox system offers a convenient and safe way for consumers to recharge their phones whilst continuing to shop. It is the latest initiative we are delivering at our shopping centres and parks to further improve the shopper experience.”
