Already many people are seeing the excitement of subscription boxes. Royal Mail has forecast the subscription box market to hit £1 billion by 2022, compared to a just £583 million estimated spend in 2017.
A survey of 2,000 UK shoppers last year revealed that over 25% are subscribed to at least one box, with that figure rapidly growing every day.
So, what are the reasons? Well here’s a few:
It’s 2019, we’re all busier than ever before. No longer is there time to hunt down for new and interesting things.
Maybe you work long days or are a full time parent and don’t have time to make snacks, instead you can dive into your monthly box.
Plus with delivery to your door, you can get on with life and let companies like TreatKind get on with finding you your snacks.
It’s always exciting to get a present, especially when you know that it’s going to be a box of things you’re really passionate and excited about.
The biggest benefit many see for subscription boxes is that you get to find out about new products that you wouldn’t necessary find in a supermarket, or think to spot as you’re doing your daily shop. Many of the products, especially those in the TreatKind boxes are from smaller companies that stock their products in independent retailers.
An Exclusive Community
Some say community has been lost since the degradation of the high street, however that’s not really the case. Instead the community has moved to online and more specific groups that people are interested in. By signing up to a subscription box, you’re also joining an exclusive community where you can interact and get involved with other like-minded people.
