Just like the Apple Store! I was in Smythson on Bond Street earlier today (obligatory Christmas shopping) and was significantly impressed when the lady serving me (Vicky — thank you) asked if she could email my receipt.
Yes please. I love it. No messing around with bits of paper months later when I want to check the serial number or product name of the purchase. It also represents a handy reminder for insurance purposes should the worst happen.
Good work Smythson! I hope more shops consider this extra service. It obviously also ensures the shop has your email address and you have theirs.
