Target Announces Improvement Plans for 2018
March 7, 2018
Minneapolis-based retailer Target has announced the expansion of its curbside pickup program and the launch of free two-day delivery. According to the Star Tribune, Target introduced several new measures to enhance its business model this year. The news arrives amidst the retailer’s plans to overhaul hundreds of its stores.
Next month will see the rollout of the Drive Up program, which began testing at 50 stores around Minneapolis last year. Its same-day delivery concept, which began a trial run at a few Manhattan locations, will spread to all five of the city’s boroughs to better accommodate urban shoppers. Target’s same-day delivery through Shipt will grow to nearly its entire lineup by the holidays as well, while the next-day delivery option Restock will open in 30 more cities this year.
Target oversees nearly 1,800 stores.
