Federal Realty Launches Contactless Exchange for Retailers

Order Reprints...

Ahead of a phased re-opening for shopping center tenants in the coming weeks, Federal Realty Investment Trust (NYSE: FRT) is launching The Pick-Up, a curbside, contactless exchange.

Scheduled to launch on May 15 at Federal’s properties in the D.C. metro area and nationally, the initiative is intended to provide a centralized service that retailers and restaurants of all sizes can take advantage of, particularly small businesses.

“The Pick-Up takes what is already a growing trend and builds a scalable platform making it easier for merchants and customers to coordinate the quick, contactless exchange of products to help our tenants drive demand given the immediate effects of COVID-19,” said Don Wood, CEO of the Rockville, MD-based REIT.

He added, “Long term, this national platform delivers a resource for our merchants to evolve with this growing channel within brick and mortar.”
