BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Books-A-Million has expanded its buy online, pick-up in store offering with a new, free curbside pick-up option. This service allows consumers to shop online, alert the store when they arrive and pull curbside at their local store to have their purchase brought directly to their vehicle by a Books-A-Million associate.
“This new service not only provides an added convenience to our shoppers, but it also helps the community during a time when social distancing has become a necessary measure,” said Scott Kappler, Chief Marketing Officer.
The curbside offering will be available at nearly all Books-A-Million locations. Post-purchase communication via email and text message will provide status updates of when orders are ready for pick-up and contact information to alert the store upon arrival.
“At Books-A-Million we are doing all we can to assure that our stores are a clean and safe environment for both our customers and our associates. Reading, sharing stories, supporting our children’s educational needs, playing games and connecting as families has never been more important than it is during these times of challenge and disruption. Serving our communities has and will continue to be our focus,” said Terrance Finley, Chief Executive Officer.

Books-A-Million got its start in 1917 as a magazine stand in Florence, Alabama and now operates over 200 stores in 32 states as well as an online store at booksamillion.com.
