Given LA's outdoor monster centers of fitness, food, and shopping, indoor shopping hubs are smart to compete with the perks of these megadevelopments—like Glendale Galleria, which scored its own fashionable facelift not too long ago. The Americana at Brand-adjacent mall is now offering curbside pickup via aptly-titled app Curbside, meaning shoppers can indulge in retail therapy without ever stepping foot (or parking) inside.
Available starting next Tuesday, August 18th, the app allows users to shop from Glendale Galleria's stores and pick up their orders at the Curbside Pickup Pod. Even better: the service and app are free, and Curbside doesn't mark up in-store prices. Genius, no? Download the app for iOS or Android here.
