This Just In—Target Will Be Offering Same-Day Delivery Next Year
Target has long been a one-stop shop for everything from cleaning supplies and home improvement tools to home décor and fashion staples. The only problem is that once you're inside Target, it's hard to leave without purchasing something from every aisle. Now the department store giant is making moves to offer same-day delivery on all products, CNN Money reports.
Target recently purchased Shipt, which uses personal shoppers to deliver orders from retailers in just a few hours. The store hopes to bring same-day delivery to about half of its locations by the beginning of the New Year, with the goal of offering the service at a majority of stores by 2019.
"With Shipt's network of local shoppers and their current market penetration, we will move from days to hours, dramatically accelerating our ability to bring affordable same-day delivery to guests across the country," says John Mulligan, Target's COO.
This could mean major changes for your Target impulse shopping tendencies, as well as help the company keep up with competitors like Amazon and Costco that already offer similar services.
