Customers who visit the Michaels website once the service launches will be able to choose same-day delivery at checkout from a participating location so long as they live near one.

When selected, delivery personnel will place a customer’s package on their doorstep before they knock or ring a doorbell and return to their vehicle, which is a helpful policy in the social distancing age of the coronavirus.

Same-day delivery is applicable to orders placed before 1 p.m. local time. Any orders placed after this time will be delivered the following day.

Michaels allows same-day delivery for customers living within a 10-mile radius of its stores.
