Target Expanding Drive Up Service

Target is expanding its Drive Up service to more stores across the country. The service allows consumers to place orders in the retailer’s app, and then have their items brought out to their car by a store team member.

Two hundred additional Target stores across the Midwest and select states have added the time-saving pickup service option. Drive Up is now available in Midwest markets including Chicago; Indianapolis; Columbus, Ohio; Lansing, Michigan; and other cities including Louisville, Kentucky; Erie, Pennsylvania; and South Charleston, West Virginia.

With Drive Up, everything from home essentials to clothing to electronics orders are brought out to cars within two minutes of when the shopper pulls into the store parking lot, the company said.

To use within the app, the consumer can select Drive Up as the fulfillment option when placing an order through the Target app. Target will notify when the order is ready, usually within one hour. Hit the “I’m on the Way” button when ready to head to the store. Park in a designated Drive Up spot, and within two minutes a team member will have the order at the car, ready to be loaded into the trunk or backseat

The expansion brings the total number of Drive Up stores to more than 800 in 25 states and in late August, the company will expand to more markets. Nearly 1,000 Target stores will offer the service by the holidays, the company said.
