  1. Will call

    In North American commerce, the term will call refers to a method of delivery for goods where the customer picks up the goods at the seller's place of business. It may also refer to the department within a business where goods are staged for customer pick up. The word "call" is a shortened form of "call for", which means "to come and get", so "will call" literally means " will come and get".

As of 2013, it is still in wide use for ticket sales at a box office where patrons of entertainment venues go to pick up pre-purchased tickets for an event, such as a play or concert, either just before the event or in advance.
