Target announced earlier this week that it hired executives from Walmart and General Mills in an effort to boost its grocery business. The company also announced that it would buy delivery logistics company Grand Junction so it could offer same-day delivery service to in-store shoppers.
Target and rival Walmart are continually making efforts to compete more successfully with Amazon, the leader in online sales and a growing force in the grocery business.
Target says they plan to start the delivery service at some New York locations, and then bring it to other major cities next year. Eventually it plans to use Grand Junction’s software to speed up the delivery time for online orders.
