It's that time of year again! With Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approaching, shopping in Montreal is about to get hectic.  

While retail stores are open in Montreal as part of Quebec's red-zone protocols, shopping in any enclosed space can be risky, as coronavirus cases are on the rise.

Delivery is an option but then you have to wait, you can't be certain of when your package will arrive and delivery fees can take a huge toll on anyone's wallet.

While most retail stores are offering pickup in-store, a number of stores in the city are offering contactless pickup outside the storefront, also known as click & collect or curbside pickup.

Whether you're on foot or in your car, you can skip the hassle of in-person shopping.

Scroll through to see nine retail stores currently offering contactless pickup at their locations. Note that minimum order requirements vary depending on the store and products.

Canadian Tire

Where: All Canadian locations

Why You Need To Go: Canadian Tire offers "Pay & Pickup" at all its locations. All you need to do is pay online before noon for same-day pickup by 4 p.m.

If you buy after 4 p.m., your order will be available for pickup by noon the following day. Orders can be picked up in-store.


Home Depot

Where: All Quebec locations

Why You Need To Go: If you want to revamp your home (finally!), Home Depot is offering "Curbside Pick-Up" at all of its Quebec locations.

It's as simple as placing an order online, heading to the store and showing your ID. An employee will load your items in your car for you.


Hudson's Bay

Where: All Canadian locations

Why You Need To Go: Hudson's Bay offers "Curbside Pickup with Contactless Loading" at all its locations. Depending on the location, you'll have to find the designated pickup entrance and call the number included in your order confirmation email.

A store associate can load your car for you, or you can request that your items be left at the pickup area for you to collect. 


IKEA

Where: All Canadian locations

Why You Need To Go: Although many IKEA locations across Canada have "Curbside Click & Collect service," IKEA Montreal is a bit more limited.

Here it offers "In-store Click & Collect" — which simply means you can order online and then drop by to pick up the items without having to navigate the warehouse or wait in line.

Pick up a whole kitchen if you want to! 


Indigo

Where: Select locations

Why You Need To Go: You'll be staying home a lot in the month of October since most businesses in Quebec's red zone are closed for 28 days. It's the perfect time to make your way through your fall book list.

Luckily, Indigo is offering "Contactless Curbside Pickup" at all its locations. You can select the "FREE SHIP TO A STORE" option at checkout, and then wait in your car or outside of your store on foot to receive your order.


Lush

Where: Select locations

Why You Need To Go: Self-care is a must during COVID-19 lockdown periods — that's why Lush is offering "Contactless pickup" at many Montreal and Quebec locations.

Michaels

Where: Select Canadian locations

Why You Need To Go: Get a head start on those Halloween crafts with contactless curbside pickup at Michaels locations. 

When you have arrived and parked, call the store number, press three or four and provide your order number and the name on the order. They'll bring it out to you.

Why You Need To Go: You can finally stock up on those much-needed bottles of wine for your quarantine movie nights without even going to the store. What could be better? The SAQ is offering pickup at their locations within three to five business days of your order date.

It costs $6 for orders under $75. Once at the store, you'll have to give your order number to an employee and they'll tell you where to collect it.


Staples (Bureau en Gros)

Where: Most Canadian locations

Why You Need To Go: If you're looking to work on any self-development projects during red zone month, Staples is offering "Contactless Curbside Pickup" at all its locations. 

It's as simple as placing an order online, waiting for a confirmation e-mail and going to the store. Once you're there, call the store and an associate will bring your order outside.
