In a Twitter post today, 1 April 2020, Pick n Pay stated, “We’ve made your lockdown shopping easier with Collect Direct. Email your grocery essentials list to a selected store, await confirmation order, arrange payment with store and then collect it directly.” The service allows customers to purchase their essential goods online and collect their items from outside the store. This enables them to have fresh goods without entering the grocery store and potentially contracting the coronavirus.The Collect Direct service will only be available to customers in the Western Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and the Northern Region. Further, the service has been limited to specific stores with high-volume customers, in an attempt to decreases the chances of transmitting the virus.

Goods available for purchase from the essential list include cleaning products, basic medication, fresh vegetables and fruit, meat, and other day-to-day essentials. Once the order has been placed online, a staff member from the designated Pick n Pay store will reach out to the customer, offering them a suitable time for collection.
