ROCKVILLE, Md., May 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Federal Realty announces the rollout of a contactless pick-up program at its shopping centers in the Greater Philadelphia market. Branded The Pick-Up, the program is made available to all tenants and customers looking for comfortable ways to return to shopping at their favorite stores.
The program expands on an already popular curbside pick-up program that was rolled out for restaurants at the start of the COVID-19 mandatory closings. Customers will be able to place orders directly with stores by phone or on-line, and arrange for same day pick-up, at a time most convenient for them.
"The Pick-Up will allow for my team to add another layer of service to our customer experience, with minimal effort. Customers can simply order by phone or through our App and utilize The Pick-Up," says Justin Rosenberg, owner of Honeygrow in Bala Cynwyd, PA and Cherry Hill, NJ. Rosenberg continues, "Customers are notified by text and our team can run their order out to their car with a completely contactless exchange. Federal's proactive support will help us meet a new demand with this program and gives us a tool we need to thrive in a challenging environment."
Federal expects to grow The Pick-Up, with plans to expand on the service, in response to the changes in customer shopping habits. "We see this as a long-term solution to finding even more convenient ways for customers to shop," says Jeff Fischer, Vice President of Leasing," and assisting our merchants to create meaningful engagement with customers that is not possible through on-line shopping," Fischer continues.
Installation of The Pick-Up locations will begin mid-May in preparation for businesses re-opening when permitted. Look for The Pick-Up at Federal properties, including Andorra Shopping Center, Bala Cynwyd Shopping Center, Ellisburg Circle, Flourtown Shopping Center, Lancaster Shopping Center, Langhorne Square, Lawrence Park Shopping Center, Northeast Shopping Center, and Wynnewood Shopping Center.
