Last month Target announced that it rolled out its Target Restock service nationwide, and that the company has expanded its Shipt same-day delivery service in six midwestern states.
According to Target, more than 75% of the U.S. population can order from an assortment of 35,000 items and have their “Restock box” delivered to their door the next day. Through the Restock service, customers can order food, home essentials and other consumer staples.
Customers can order as late as 7:00pm and have their boxes delivered the next day. Target fulfills the orders from shelves of nearby stores.
With the planned addition of 12 million Midwest households, same-day delivery via Shipt, which Target acquired last December, will soon be available to more than 60 million households in more than 100 markets nationwide. Target expects the service to be in 180 markets – reaching 80 million households – by the end of this year.
Through Shipt, Target customers can get same-day delivery of more than 55,000 groceries, household essentials, electronics, toys, home and other items.
An annual Shipt membership provides free, same-day delivery on orders of more than $35. Members search and shop online, make special requests, select a one-hour delivery window, and pay for their order. Personal shoppers pick, bag and delivery the orders.
