Greece’s Click-and-Collect Scheme Could Go Click Inside – The Store

December 30, 2020

ATHENS – A so-called “click and collect” method in which people in Greece can order goods online and make a reservation at a store to pick them up as a safeguard during the COVID-19 pandemic could be amended to let them go inside and look for items.

Click Inside as it’s being called is being mulled in the wake of the click-and-collect that had helped many businesses closed during a second lockdown that began Nov. 7 and isn’t due to end until Jan. 7, 2021, or extended if case loads don’t fall enough.

Under Click Inside, customers with an appointment could inside a store and try on goods such as clothes or look for what they want instead of just relying on doing it online which limits their options.

Retail stores closed 17 weeks this year have been battered by huge losses, many of them not expected to survive and are hoping the lockdown will lift as scheduled so customers – likely with limits on how many – can shop inside again.

The problems for Click Inside, said Kathimerini, is to prevent queues outside stores, and whether to expand the program to stores selling apparel, furniture and electric appliances which are deemed non-essential for now, and still closed.
