Since online sales have already proven to be at the highest level in history during the 2014 Christmas holiday shopping season, a shopping option which allows customers to buy online and pick up their purchases at a local brick-and-mortar store may make the difference between capturing e-commerce shopper dollars or not.

Referred to as "ship to store," "click and pick up ," and "click-to-brick," this is an integrated strategy which allows customers to shop at their leisure on their computers, and pick up their purchases in a physical store at their convenience.

This saves online shoppers both shipping time and shipping charges, two aspects of online shopping that customers find unappealing.

This is a list of U.S. retailers with e-commerce websites that are offering a ship-to-store option for the merchandise that is purchased online on their Internet website. Click the links to get complete details about each retailer's free ship-to-store services.
