Rent the Runway customers can now be one step closer to actually not having a closet. The company just announced they are launching same-day delivery in NYC, with plans to expand to other markets soon. Customers who order by 12pm will have their order delivered by 5pm, and receive live updates with the ability to adjust the delivery window.
To be clear, Rent the Runway has experimented with same-day delivery before, including a prior partnership with UberRUSH, as well as some deliveries done same-day in New York by their own couriers. Today’s announcement formalizes that same-day delivery service with a promise that if you order before noon your items will arrive by 5pm.
In New York City every item available online can be delivered same day, with inventory coming from either their Secaucus, N.J. warehouse or NYC store.
