See a list of all the online businesses helping to stretch your shopping week even further.
For the majority of us, 9am-5pm on weekdays are strictly working hours where any personal errands take a backseat. Even though the digital age has made it easier for us to shop from our desks when we think our boss isn't looking, being able to easily receive our items remains a problem. Luckily, some retailers have noticed this hole in the market and are here to make your life a little easier by offering Saturday delivery options. We've compiled a list of all the stores who are here to help out by bringing you your goods on the weekend.

Other ways to get your items sooner
Even though there are a growing number of retailers jumping on the Saturday delivery wagon, not everyone is offering it just yet. So what other options are there to get your packages at a time more convenient for you? Many retailers like MYER, Bras N Things and JB Hi-Fi now offer a click and collect option, meaning that you can place your order online but pick it up in-store without the fuss of finding your items on the shop floor.
If you would still rather avoid the shops all together, you can now nominate an Australia Post parcel locker as your delivery address for a self-service parcel collection. Parcel lockers are accessible 24/7 at more than 140 Australia Post locations across Australia and can be accessed with a code sent to you via text or email. To see your closest self-service location, check out Australia Post's parcel locker information page.
