Amazon isn’t the only company that played with the idea of having groceries dropped straight to your car after you purchase them online and head over to the appropriate location to pick up your order. Target launched a similar service last year called Drive Up, as the name suggests, customers just drive up to the store and an employee will load them in their car.
Target launched a pilot program for its Drive Up service last year. The service lets customers order whatever from want from the Target app and then pick up their purchase at a Target store where it will be delivered straight to their car when they pull up. There’s even no need to get out of the car for all of this.
Target appears to have received a good response to the pilot program which is why it has now decided to expand its Drive Up service to almost 270 cities across the United States.
Customers who want to take advantage of this service should keep in mind that they have to select Drive Up as the fulfillment option when placing an order through Target’s mobile app.
The company has a two-hour window to put your order together but it can normally do that in a shorter period of time. You then pull up in the designated Drive Up spots at Target locations and an employee will bring out the order within two minutes to your car.
