    Oh, I love the jackets and umbrellas we got for the TMs doing it. And the magnets. anyone else get magnets of the logo?

    I'm sure it won't take off like they expect/want it to. Majority of guests will still do regular flexible if they're doing an online order to pick up.

    Wonder how many guests will immediately place an order then just drive to to the store like it's ready in seconds. Already bad enough for some people that don't know what their doing and show up 10 min after they drop a flexible instead of waiting for the email that it's ready to be picked up.

    PMT is repainting the parking spots. Other than that, nothing happening yet. I still think those spots are going to get taken by people who don't care to read signs

    You'll likely get a few regulars who do it once or twice a week.
    The fucking honking will haunt your dreams and make you question using a zebra or going to work.
    Your leadership will hammer into you hard that the order needs to be brought out in two minutes or less.
    Overall not that bad, unless you're bringing it out in this freaking Minnesota April blizzard.

    I've had a couple of moms with young kids ask (and express great excitement about it). Other than that, I've had no questions whatsoever.

    We have it at my store. It’s not used a ton, but roughly 10-20 driveups a day. It’s super helpful for parents who have young kids that they don’t want to unload. I’m not a GS team member so I’m not 100% qualified to talk about any issues, but I haven’t heard any yet. Can be a pain getting someone to come cover GS though when they go out. Doesn’t make things harder for FF at all, just a different bag and rack that the orders have to go on. Just need to double check the order number once to see if it’s a drive up or a FF. Overall I think it’s worked well at my store. Only complaint is how fucking loud the zebras are.

    The next generation of plain LAZY. I bet it was a muffin man who came up with the idea.

    Well, we are an A volume store, so. Just doesn’t seem like a whole lot, it’s around 1-2 an hour.

    Of course blame this generation, not like it was someone from the generation before who came up with the idea, Soccer moms in their mid to late 30s are probably the targeted audience :rolleyes:

    Lazy AF. Now everything has to be with the push of a button or speak to it.

    'So convenient that I can sit my fat ass all day and get fatter. And do nothing about it until the day I break the couch that I order another one, pay for them to assemble it. I don't care about money, since I am so busy I need to save my time but am actually doing nothing at all and not breaking a sweat since my body would terribly ache if I were to assemble furniture I order. Also the assembly instructions are terribly hard to understand since my brain has shrunk due to the ease of everything being electronic that my smartphone thinks for me.'

    That's them. That's the same people they are marketing same day delivery to. Then they don't have to complain about the quality of the produce they want delivered. I'd sell them shit waiting to get QMOS'd so they learn to get their fat ass of that couch and into the stores!

    It is good when you have dogs you can't leave alone and need shopping to get done. I can order it up and drive down and pick it up, I get food and toilet paper and not have a $1000 dollar vet bill from the dog tearing himself up.. Win/Win..

    It's funny because when I'd cart attend I'd totally see 12-14 people a shift parking there and coming out with a cart for groceries :") It's really hard to tell who's suppose to be there and who isn't.

    also, almost 100% sure it's not millennials using OPU. I've seen literally nothing but people in their 30's or 40's use it. It's not about being inherently lazy, it's about CONVENIENCE.

    no idea how old you are @YoNanas or if you're joking, but that was completely unnecessary to post and you're probably legitimately the only person actively thinking like that. If it was sarcasm, I laughed.

    Funny thing, my parents work out daily and my mom will order groceries via OPU while walking on the treadmill. She doesn't do Shipt, but she might consider it. My parents are busy a lot with work and it frees up time just to get someone else to pick it out and then run it out to your car while you wait a few minutes.

    EDIT: Put it this way.. someone is offering a service to you, if you want that service, you pay for it. I could say the same thing that it's lazy as fuck to let an auto shop change your car oil when you can do it for yourself $20 cheaper and the only tool you need is a wrench... it's one single bolt you release to drain engine oil.

    If people want to pay for such a service for it's convenience and ability to save time, they will, there is nothing wrong with that. They paid for it, why it's anyone else's problem past that is beyond me. (Oh they're so lazy, why can't they get off their fat ass and do it themselves?)
