The holiday season is in full swing, and we all know what that means: endlessly long checkout lines at every store, whether we’re buying presents or restocking toilet paper.
That’s where Curbside comes in. This new, only-in-SF app lets you do your shopping from your iPhone or Android at places like Target, Toys “R” Us and K&L Wine Merchants, and then pick up your haul right in front of the store.
Browse items, add to your cart and proceed to checkout. Curbside tells you when your order will be available for pickup (often as little as an hour). It will even send you a reminder text when your order is ready.
Currently, curbside pickup is available at the Metreon and Masonic Target locations in San Francisco (other participating retailers have in-store pickup for now). Just pull up to the branded tent next to the store’s entrance and the valet guy will drop your purchases into your trunk. You don’t even need to park.
Seeing all those chumps waiting in line will bring a smile to your face.
