So as you can imagine, the concept of click and collect is music to my ears. The pleasure of being able to shop online in your pajamas and avoid Saturday shopping and bustling crowds, plus also avoiding accusatory frowns from the postman at work. Perfect. When I was recently contact to see if I wanted to roadtest the Matalan Click and Collect service I jumped at the chance. I've actually long been a fan of Matalan, I particularly love their homewares range but you can also find a good few gems in their clothes sections too.
I spent quite some time nosing around their site online and eventually ordered two jersey midi-dresses, some slouchy trousers for morning dog walks and some cardigans for work. I overspent on the £50 voucher they kindly gave me by about £20 as there were so many things on there I'd been hunting for for ages but not thought to try Matalan for.

The only downside of Click and Collect, which stems from my shopping habits and not from the useful service Matalan have provided, is that whilst instore... I spent a bit more money. After we'd queued and I'd handed over my proof of order they suggested we look around the store whilst they found the parcel. Tom found a pair of chinos in the sale and I picked up another two cardigans, a set of bedsheets and a mug. All in all we ended up spending another £65, and about £120 in total. The funniest part was that I bought a cardigan, and when I got home, it was one I'd already ordered online! Ooops.
