Target expands Drive Up program to new states
Minneapolis-based Target is further expanding its Drive Up curbside click-and-collect service, right on time for the back-to-school season.
The company announced it's rolling out its Drive Up curbside delivery to more than 300 additional stores, making curbside pickup available at more than 1,550 stores total. As part of the expansion, Drive Up is coming to New England with the addition of stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine and New Hampshire.
The company’s drive up program allows customers to place a mobile order, pull up to their local store and have an associate bring the order to their car in less than two minutes for free.
“Whether you’re shopping for back to school or everyday essentials, Drive Up makes it easy to get what you need fast,” said Dawn Block, senior vice president of digital for Target. “We’re excited to bring Drive Up to more stores so guests can have more options to get their Target Run done on their terms.”
Shoppers can select products from an assortment of nearly 200,000 items including home furnishings, toys, electronics, household essentials, non-perishable food and baby-care in the Target app, and select Drive Up at checkout. Target notifies them when their order is ready for pickup, and the customer alerts the store when they’re on their way. The customer then parks in a designated spot so a Target associate can load up their car.
The company introduced its Drive Up program in October 2017.
