Brick and Mortar stores sometimes have a tough time competing with online businesses that do not have the same overhead costs and can avoid the tax and other record keeping and reporting burdens.
They are finally starting encroaching on these carefree digital businesses by pushing BOPIS policies which stands for Buy Online Pick Up in Store.
It is quite attractive as we approach a risky shipping time for holidays that require advanced shipping time like Christmas, Valentine’s Day and other holidays. In the crunch, you can score a deal online and beat the rush and hustle and bustle of shopping crowds.
A lot of stores have a special line for mobile phone and online orders so you do not even need to stand in line, necessarily.
Here are some of the top stores that still have sales so you can get your BOPIS on!
BEST BUY will give you your items in a shorter pick up line until.
WALMART will allow you to order up to 4:oopm and pick up today.
TARGET offers same day order pick up until Christmas Eve.
MACY’S will provide free same day pick up with an order of $25 or more.
Will add more as I see them! Happy Shopping!
