21 Stores Offering Curbside Pickup This Holiday Season
Shopping this Christmas season was no doubt different given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but some retailers are offering services to make your experience as safe and seamless as possible.
Stores including Bloomingdale’s, Athleta, Macy’s, and others offer free roadside pickups. The service allows customers to drive to their favorite store and wait in their vehicle while a salesperson brings their items out and loads them into their car. To experience the convenience, customers only need to order online and can usually pick up the goods they have purchased on the same day – sometimes within two hours. Pick-up times vary from shop to shop. It is therefore recommended to call beforehand.

An Adobe survey in June found that 23% of US online shoppers said they would rather be on the roadside or shop online than pick up in store (BOPIS). According to an August 2020 analysis by Coresight Research, 38 of the 50 largest US retailers now offer a roadside pickup option, and the consultancy predicts that proportion will continue to grow.
