Being able to shop at the mall is one step closer to coming back after it was announced that nonessential retailers can provide curbside pickup.
The decision announced by Gov. Phil Murphy includes mall interior stores. Many malls in the Garden State will now be offering online shopping and curbside pickup.
“We’re very excited to offer this curbside pickup to our customers and offer this – a variety of options to shop but still with the safety of keeping regulations in place,” says Jay Daly, the senior general manager at the Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus.
Daly says that the mall has been planning for this phase of reopening.
The mall has many stores, many without outside doors, so the stores have been assigned to one of four zones. Customers will be told which zone to drive to after their order is placed.
There will be 20 designated parking spots in each zone. The customers will park in one of those spots, call the retailer and let them know which spot they are parked in.
“The retailer comes out to deliver the product in a contactless way,” says Daly.
Some restaurants and larger anchor stores that have exterior entrance and exits have been providing pickup services already.
Twenty-five retailers at the Garden State Plaza have signed on for curbside pickup.
Some other malls that are offering curbside pickup include Paramus Park Mall, Woodbridge Mall, Quakerbridge Mall, Bridgewater Commons Mall and Monmouth Mall. Most have their pickup protocols listed on the mall’s websites.
