The recent article featured in Connex Weekly, "The Rise of Dark Stores," reported, "More retailers are accommodating the shift of shopping from in-store to online by turning their physical locations into so-called "dark stores"-miniature warehouse-like spaces where online orders can be packed for pickup or delivery. Retail experts say this is just the start of a major trend." The article described two different methods: 

- Dark Stores - only for Fulfillment 
- Semidark or Hybrid Approach - shoppers submit most of their order online but shoppers can still choose their own produce or deli items
