Rent the Runway Now Offers Same-Day Dress Delivery — But There’s a Catch
With so many weddings to attend this season, shopping for a new dress for each event can get super expensive, which is why Rent the Runway has become such a lifesaver in the last few years. But sometimes you procrastinate (read: forget to pick up your gown from the dry cleaner) and need a style in a pinch. Well, RTR is here to save the day: They’re now offering same day delivery!
There is one catch — currently, the quick-turnaround service is only available in NYC, where RTR is headquartered. But as the rental company has plans to expand into other locations, all hope is not lost for those outside of the five boroughs.
Here’s how it works: If you place your order before lunch (12pm), your clothing will be in your hands before happy hour (5pm). You will also get live in-app updates and be able to adjust the rental delivery window accordingly. Styles start at $30 and include a free backup size. Shipping is just $10 for regular members and free for PRO members.
Would you use Rent the Runway’s same-day service? What fun events do you have coming up? Tell us @BritandCo!
