East Texas Giving Day – Convenience of Online Giving

How often does a package arrive at your home? I remember as a kid ordering by phone from the J.C. Penney catalog and going to the store to pick up my merchandise when it arrived. It probably took a minimum of four weeks from order to pick up. We’ve come a long way since then and technological innovations keep demonstrating that our customer experience can continue to be improved. Today, Amazon will bring nearly any conceivable item to your doorstep overnight, and they are even working with UPS and testing unmanned drone deliveries to get the product to you home in under an hour. One of the interesting advances I have observed in Tyler in the last year is scheduled pickup service at Walmart and more recently at Lowes. As a guy, it is really hard to conceive of an occasion in which I would pass up the opportunity to cruise the aisles of Lowes, but I think I understand the concept.

The real issue is time. How do we make the most of our precious time? We may not mind perusing the aisles at Walmart or Lowes, but when we know the items we want, the question is more about how to save time to acquire them. The solution, according to Walmart and Lowes in 2018, seems to be online ordering and scheduled pickup. Spend all the time you want shopping online, adding items to your order at any time of day or night, then schedule a certain time that fits your schedule to swing by and pick up the entire order at one convenient spot.
