Royal Mail will be trialling a new service that allows parcels to be delivered on Sundays.
Royal Mail have confirmed the start of a Sunday delivery service.
At the moment, customers can expect to receive their parcels between Monday and Saturday, however, Sunday has always been void.
Now, Royal Mail will matching Amazon with their delivery service, offering Sunday delivery to certain retailers.
Royal Mail boss Nick Landon said: “The UK already trusts us to deliver their purchases six days a week quickly and conveniently.
"Now, for the first time, our posties will be doing the same thing seven days a week."
He continued: “The last year has reset so many customer expectations and the desire for even more convenient and even more frequent parcel deliveries has certainly been one of them.
“We always listen to our customers, both senders and recipients, and the ask here was clear: we love what you do Monday to Saturday, so please do the same on a Sunday.”
It has not yet been confirmed which 'major retailers' will be included in the Sunday delivery service.
