Imagine completing your next Costco run without ever setting foot inside the store! 🙌
For some Costco members, part of the fun of shopping at the warehouse club is taking a leisurely stroll through the aisles to see what’s new. For others, the goal is to get in and get out as quickly as possible. If you’re this kind of Costco shopper, then we have some good news for you!
It appears that Costco is finally offering curbside pickup at select locations in New Mexico. Currently, Costco members can try the new curbside pickup feature at any of the club’s Albuquerque, NM locations. While this service is only available at a very limited number of stores, Costco fans are hoping that this means the company is testing curbside pickup for a large-scale, companywide rollout!
Curbside pickup is available for Costco members only, and item prices are the same as in-warehouse pricing at the time the order is placed. There are about 2,000 items eligible for curbside pickup, including all groceries and select non-food items.
If you live in the greater Albuquerque area and want to try Costco’s new curbside pickup feature, you can shop through Costco.com or the Costco App, where you’ll have the opportunity to choose your warehouse and a one-hour pickup timeframe under Same Day Delivery options. After you place your order, Costco employees will take care of your shopping!
When your order is ready for pickup, you’ll receive a text message telling you where to park and how to check-in. Participating Costco Warehouses now have dedicated pickup parking spaces. A Costco employee will deliver your order to your vehicles in a contactless manner. Tips are not accepted.
While the prospect of this new convenience is certainly exciting, there are some details to be aware of. There is a minimum order of $100 required for curbside pickup, and there is a $10 pickup fee charged on each pickup order. Costco reports that this fee is necessary because curbside pickup adds an additional expense to its low-cost business model and limited markup structure.
