Target and Shipt logosTarget announced that it will acquire a company called Shipt, which is a same-day delivery company. This acquisition will make it possible for Target to offer customers same-day delivery in many of its stores. The process is being rolled out to individual Target stores in 2018.

In early 2018, Target will be able to offer same-day delivery in about half of their stores. Those stores will be able to offer same-day delivery of groceries, essentials, home products, electronics, and other products.

Target is aiming to make same-day delivery an option at the majority of its stores by the 2018 holiday season. Target’s goal is to offer same-day delivery on all of their major product categories by the end of 2019.

The purpose of offering same-day shipping is to make shopping at Target easier, more reliable, and more convenient. The company has already launched a few things that expand ship-from-store options.

Target Restock was expanded in August of 2017 to include Dallas-Fort Worth and Denver. Target Restock is an easier way for people to get their household essentials and groceries. Those who live in areas where Target Restock is available can take advantage of this next-day delivery service.

People who live in the Twin Cities area can make use of Drive Up. As of the Summer of 2017, Drive Up was offered for free at Target stores throughout the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. The service allows people to make a purchase on the Target Drive Up app, and have it ready for them when they arrive at the Target store. A Target worker will bring the items out to Drive Up customers, who are parked in designated areas.

Shipt makes sure that the same person who shops for a customer’s items is also the person who delivers those items to the customer.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
