Retail has changed drastically in response to COVID-19, but one change we hope sticks around is curbside pickup. Instead of dealing with the hassle of finding parking or trying to steer a rickety cart while wearing a face mask, we can get makeup, hair tools, and even furniture delivered right to our cars — or if you don't drive, brought right outside to you.
At most stores, the process is relatively simple: Place an order online for curbside pickup, wait for a text or email notification saying that your order is ready, head over to the designated area, let the store know that you've arrived, and pop the trunk. It's really simple, but to keep both you and store employees safe, the rules may vary by retailer. We've put together a guide to navigating curbside at 12 retailers, along with a few recommendations on products you may want to add to your cart while you shop from the comfort of your couch.
All products featured on Allure are independently selected by our editors. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission.
In case you haven't already, take note of the "Beyond" part of this retailer's name. You'll find a pretty impressive selection of hair and skin-care products from brands like Burt's Bees, OGX, and John Frieda.
Within two hours of placing your order on the Bed Bath & Beyond site or mobile app, you'll receive an email or text instructing you to head over to the store area indicated with "Curbside Pickup" signage to pick up your items. So break out those Bed Bath & Beyond coupons that haven't expired and get to shopping with the added convenience and safety of just grabbing and going.
