Target Launches Restock, Its New Quick Delivery Service in Twin Cities
Target rolled out a new household essentials delivery service on Tuesday aimed squarely at competing with Amazon’s Prime Pantry service.
The service, called Target Restock, is launching first as a pilot program in the Twin Cities for the company’s RedCard holders.
Target is touting cheaper shipping and faster delivery times than Seattle-based Amazon’s offering. The local retailer is claiming customers who place an order Monday through Thursday before 2 p.m. can expect delivery by the next day.
Both services carry many of the same product types: food and beverage, health care items, cleaning supplies, personal care, pet care, baby items and more.
“We look forward to seeing how guests in our hometown market respond to this new offering,” Mike McNamara, chief information and digital officer at Target, said in a statement.
Minneapolis-based Target did not say when Restock would roll out to other markets but hinted it would come soon. “We’ll continue to fine-tune the experience and test new enhancements.”
