Southlake City Council held its regular meeting Tuesday and unanimously voted in favor of a concept plan to allow for curbside pickup services at the Central Market grocery store in the Shops at Southlake retail center.
Customers will be able to order items online and select a set time to pick them up. Once they arrive and park in one of eight restricted parking spaces, an employee will bring their purchases to the car, said David Palmer, executive vice president with Weitzman, the commercial real estate company that manages and leases space in the development. The service will likely be introduced in the fall.
To store customer orders for pickup, Central Market will have to expand its operations into the adjacent building space currently occupied by Toy Maven, a toy store.
Toy Maven will move to another space within the Shops at Southlake, which will be closer to Pier 1 Imports, Palmer said.
