Target to test next-day essentials delivery

MINNEAPOLIS - Most of us have been there... shelves empty of stuff like toilet paper, laundry soap, coffee and the like, and your schedule can't accommodate that Target run?

Well, this summer the company behind the Bullseye will test a potential solution. Target Corp. announced Monday that customers in Minneapolis will be part of a pilot program called 'Target Restock.' Here's how it will work. Consumers with a Target REDcard will visit an online site with access to thousands of household items ranging from food to cleaning products. They can fill a box with multiple items and be charged a flat delivery fee.

Those products will then be packaged at a local Target store, and delivered to the customer's home before 1:30 p.m. the next business day. 

"We created Target Restock to save busy guests time," Target stated in an online release," and make it easier than ever to get household essentials delivered quickly. This is another example of how Target is connecting stores and digital to create new services for guests."

Target team members are testing Restock right now, and the pilot will be available to selected consumers in coming weeks. 

Industry types see the pilot as an attempt to get Target into the online delivery game with Amazon, which has ramped up quick delivery of home products.
