The number of orders placed online and picked up at stores by customers has surged 208% compared with 2019, as many stores remain shut due to COVID-19 pandemic. 

As stated by CNBC, the number of orders placed online and picked up at brick-and-mortar stores by customers surged 208% between 1 and 20 April compared with 2019, according to data pulled from Adobe Analytics, which measures the web transactions of 80 of the top 100 internet retailers in the US. Meantime, online sales in the US jumped 49% from 12 March to 11 April compared with a baseline from 1 to 11 March, CNBC reports.

Companies like Target have been promoting buy online, pick-up at store options to customers who feel more comfortable ordering online during the crisis. Other retailers such as Kohl’s, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Dick’s Sporting Goods have been able to offer this pick-up option at certain locations, even as their stores sit closed.
