business news in context, analysis with attitude

TechCrunch reports that Walmart-owned Sam's Club "announced the nationwide launch of curbside pickup, bringing the service to all its 597 clubs across the U.S.

"The retailer had been piloting curbside pickup at 16 club locations before today’s launch, and saw positive results. With the pandemic sending more shoppers online, Sam’s Club has since expedited the rollout to all locations, where it’s free for Plus-level members and above."

KC's View:

Seems to me that virtually every new retail establishment that is opened going forward has to have a curbside pickup facility built into the footprint.  Gotta be there - because if you don't have it, you're going to be at a competitive disadvantage.
