Curbside Pickup for Grocers and Other Retailers has Expanded
Curbside pickup. Click and collect. Drive up collection. Omnichannel retail. Whatever you call it, its
use has soared since the beginning of covid.
For instance, Target has seen over 50% growth in sales from pickup, drive up, and those that used its Shipt delivery service, according to ModernRetail.co (SOURCE). Other retailers, such as Walmart and Kroger, are also updating consumer options at checkout by investing in the necessary infrastructure to meet consumer expectations.
Who’s already in the game?
With so many retailers adopting curbside pickup, it may become an expectation of consumers. Businesses that fail to adapt could weaken their brand and miss valuable growth opportunities.
Curbside Pickup Benefits Retailers and Consumers Alike
Evolving consumer expectations present an opportunity—for consumers and retailers alike.
Providing curbside pickup can open your business to new areas for revenue growth and
development. The benefits are clear.
