This new service from Loblaws targets a very specific kind of lazy person—the kind who doesn’t mind driving to the grocery store, but would rather not exit their car once they get there. According to the Star, a Loblaws store in Richmond Hill will soon debut a “click-and-collect” program, giving customers the option to pre-order their groceries online, then relax in assigned parking spots while “personal shoppers” load up their cars. (The drive-thru service could come in handy on weekday evenings, when negotiating a cart through a packed maze is the last thing anyone wants to do.) A spokesperson for the grocery chain wouldn’t confirm when the Richmond Hill service will go live, but the click-and-collect parking pad looks pretty much ready to go.
