The retailer said Tuesday that starting Nov. 1 and running through Dec. 22, "hundreds of thousands of items" will be eligible for free, two-day shipping on Target.com. In March, it began offering the perk to its credit card holders or for those orders over $35.
Also this holiday season, Target said its "Drive Up" service — where shoppers can place their orders online and have them brought directly to their cars — will be at nearly 1,000 stores, ahead of a planned rollout schedule. And its same-day delivery option via Shipt will be available nationwide.
Target has been aggressively investing in its supply chain to give customers more ways to either shop in stores or online. With the latest progress, Target said it's never been more confident heading into the all-important holiday season, where for some companies more than 30 percent of annual sales can take place. And this year, there's plenty of market share up for grabs given the demise of Toys R Us, and Sears' recent bankruptcy filing and plans to shutter stores.
