"This hybrid of online and physical shopping is proving popular...A new report from Cowen & Co. estimates that curbside grocery pickup will account for $35 billion in sales in the U.S. by 2020 as it is embraced by a greater proportion of consumers. " Apparently, this is a trend that is growing and is expected to continue in the following years. 

It's not clear what Amazon's strategy will be, but the company does have two AmazonFresh cyrbside pickup locations in Seattle. Also, Whole Foods locations in 22 cities now have click-and-collect services. As a consumer, it's interesting to see that this is the trend that has taken off. Personally, I like to go in and pick my own groceries.
