Can you feel it? The holidays are here. Christmas is coming. And if you're a total slacker like me who hasn't even started shopping for his loved ones yet, I'm here to offer you a glimmer of hope. Because if you act now, you can pull off your holiday shopping and save some bucks on shipping and lower your stress levels. That's because there are a bunch of businesses here in Rochester that offer free in-store pickup. Not only does that save you money if you need something shipped to Rochester, but it also lets you skip the long checkout lines.

 

1. Target

Look for "Free order pickup" when adding an item to your cart.

 

2. Macy's

Click the "Free pick up" tab in the search results page, then choose the pick up option at checkout.

 

When you search by "Free pickup + discount," you can find deals on certain items if you choose to pick up in-store.

 

During checkout, choose Store Pickup and select the Rochester location. Items can be ready for pick up as soon as one hour.

 

Choose the "Pick Up In-Store" option on the product page or in your cart.

 

6. Kohl's

Click the "Free store pickup" tab next to "Ship."

 

Select "Reserve now" on the product page. You'll get a temporary $1 authorization charge on your card, but this will be refunded within 1-2 days. Orders are usually ready within 2 hours.

 

Good luck shopping! You're so close to being done. And Happy Holidays, everyone.
