While many non-essential stores remain closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company’s that have the ability to ship online orders are still doing so.
Kohl’s is now going a step even further than that, offering curbside pick-up for online orders. This option is perfect for people who would rather not wait a few days for shipping or don’t want to pay shipping costs that come with an order that’s less than $75 at Kohls.com.
The new free service is limited-contact, as you will simply wait for an email telling you your order is ready, drive up, verify your order through your car window and a Kohl’s worker will put your items in your car. It is available now at most Kohl’s stores from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time. Most orders will be ready within two hours, according to Kohl’s.
Similar to the store’s existing option to buy online and pick up in-store, not all items on the website will be available for pick-up, but those that are will be marked “Drive-Up.” There is a chance not all stores are offering the service, so make sure you select your local store when ordering.
Kohl’s stores are currently closed until further notice, but its e-commerce fulfillment centers remain open. A small number of store employees also remain in the stores, solely fulfilling online orders.
While Kohl’s does not offer essentials like groceries or medicine, online shopping for shipping or pick-up could come in handy if you’re in need of things like new pajamas (you know, to change into after changing out of your current pajamas) or new cookware since you’re probably cooking even more meals at home than usual right now.
The company is also offering 20% off your purchase now through April 11 with code SPRINGTIME and you will get $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent. The $10 can be used for online orders from April 12-19.People leave the Kohl’s Department store Thursday, May 12, 2005, in Waukesha, Wis.

Other major retailers, like Macy’s and JCPenney, are also closed for now, but are continuing to ship online orders. As of right now, Kohl’s appears to be the only department store offering curbside pick-up.
