Guests in Florida and Texas, and throughout the Southeast, will now be able to use Drive Up, the fastest way to do a Target Run yet.

Now available in nearly 270 stores throughout the South and Southeast, this convenient, time-saving service allows guests to place orders via the Target app, then have their items brought out to their cars by a store team member. Orders arrive within two minutes of when a guest pulls into the store parking lot. And it all happens while the kids can stay in their car seats!

Fueled by overwhelmingly positive guest reviews from the Minneapolis-area pilot launched last fall, Target plans to continue expanding Drive Up to reach guests at nearly 1,000 stores across the country by the end of 2018.

Here’s how it works:

  • Select Drive Up as the fulfillment option when placing an order through the Target app
  • Target will notify you when your order is ready—usually within one to two hours
  • Hit the “I’m on the Way” button when you’re 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 your car, ready to be loaded in the trunk or backseat

In addition to Florida and Texas, Drive Up is also now available at select Target stores in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and South Carolina. 

The Drive Up expansion is another great way we’re leveraging stores, supply chain and digital technologies to better serve guests, and making Target the easiest place to shop. Target now offers free two-day shipping on hundreds of thousands of items on—thanks to the high volume of online orders delivered from stores.

We continue to roll out same-day delivery of groceries (and more) through Shipt from more stores across the U.S. We’re also expanding a service that lets guests at select urban stores have their store purchases delivered to their homes later the same day. The service will be available in nearly 60 stores beginning this month in five major cities—Boston, Chicago, New York City, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. 

Next month, Target Restock, our market-leading overnight essentials offering, will expand to more than two dozen markets, covering nearly three-fourths of the U.S. population by the end of 2018.

With Drive Up and these other offerings, we’re working to make shopping Target faster, easier and more convenient than ever. Because we know that’s how our guests like to get their Target Runs done!
