Just when you thought we couldn’t get it any easier, Target has found another way to make shopping the laziest and easiest thing to do. Buzz60’s Maria Mercedes Galuppo has more.
Target runs are about to get a lot easier. The retailer today is officially expanding its new curbside pickup service called Drive Up to the first locations outside of its home market of Minneapolis-St. Paul, where it had been in pilot testing. With Drive Up, customers can place orders using the Target app on their phone, then drive to their local store and have their purchases brought out directly to their vehicles, minutes after arrival.
Starting today, nearly 270 stores across Florida, Texas and the southeast will now offer Drive Up to their customers, which is still on track to reach 1,000 of Target’s 1,800 stores by year-end.
In addition to Florida and Texas, some stores in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and South Carolina also now have access to Drive Up. The locations will often overlap with where Target’s Shipt delivery service is available.
