San Antonio sex shop now offering to-go services to keep customers satisfied during COVID-19

One San Antonio business wants to make sure customers are also focused on their sexual wellness during the pandemic, so they are offering curbside pick-up for their products.

Because of Gov. Greg Abbott's order that allowed retailers to open today under restrictions, Hustler Hollywood, an adult novelties store on the Northwest Side, can sell its products from its brick-and-mortar location in the Alamo City.

"Sexual health and wellness is the area we excel in, and if we can provide customers with a safe way to obtain our products immediately while isolating during the COVID-19 virus, then we are happy to do so," said Philip Del Rio, vice president of the retail chain. "We have had success in all the cities we are operating this alternative business model in, along with very happy customers."

Adult novelty businesses saw an increase in web traffic and sales, particularly toward the end of March, when most states started to go under a stay-at-home order, the LA Times reported. Some sites saw between a 30 and 100 percent increase in sales since the pandemic stated, the article states. Many experts attributed it to people seeking intimate connection.

For Hustler Hollywood customers, they can browse the products online, call the store and schedule a pick-up without leaving their car or entering the store, Hustler Hollywood said. The company has been using this strategy in their other stores across the country and wanted to offer the services to San Antonio.

The store operates daily from noon to 8 p.m.
