Pop quiz: What’s the top-rated Target service that can help everyone check off their school supply list in a snap? Drive Up! With Drive Up, guests can place an order in the Target app, pull up to their local store the same day and have a team member bring the order to their car in less than two minutes after driving into the parking lot. All. For. Free.

And if that’s not enough, here’s more to root for: Drive Up is expanding to bring even more guests their quickest Target Run ever, now at more than 1,550 stores. (To find a store near you, click here.) The A+ service is available for the first time in:

  • Massachusetts (Boston metro area, Springfield, Worcester)
  • Rhode Island (Providence/Warwick)
  • Maine (Portland, Augusta, Bangor)
  • New Hampshire (Manchester, Concord, Keene)

And Drive Up has expanded to more stores in:

  • New York (Rochester, Syracuse, Albany/Schenectady, Binghamton, Buffalo/Niagara Falls, Ithaca)
  • Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh, Altoona, State College)
  • Connecticut (Hartford)

“Whether you’re shopping for back to school or everyday essentials, Drive Up makes it easy to get what you need fast,” said Dawn Block, senior vice president, digital. “We’re excited to bring Drive Up to more stores so guests can have more options to get their Target Run done on their terms.”

How does it work? It’s simple! Choose from thousands of items in the Target app and select Drive Up at checkout. Target notifies you when your order is ready for pickup (often within an hour), and you alert your store when you’re on your way. Then park in the designated spot so we can load up your vehicle.
