DES MOINES, Iowa — As part of a broader effort to give consumers more purchasing and fueling options during the COVID-19 pandemic, Kum & Go LC is launching both full-service fuel and curbside pickup initiatives at select locations in the greater Des Moines region.
For full-service fueling, customers must call the main store number upon arrival at the pump, then hand their payment card or cash to the store associate who will run the transaction and perform the fueling process. Employees will wear a new pair of gloves for each transaction.
For curbside pickup, customers can call the main store phone number to place their order, which will be delivered to their vehicle upon arrival.
"We are always looking for ways to better safeguard our customers and associates," said Kum & Go President Tanner Krause. "Going back to our roots to provide a full-service fueling option can help people maintain social distancing and avoid common touch points. Our stores provide essential services and goods and we are proud to be able support our communities during these challenging times."
The programs will roll out to all Kum & Go stores next week. Hours will vary by store, but most will operate both services from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Currently participating stores are located at:
- 1293 8th Street, West Des Moines
