Amazon isn’t the only company that has toyed with the idea of having groceries shipped straight to your car after you purchase them online and head over to pick up your order. Target actually launched a similar service last year called Drive Up, where customers just drive up to the store and an employee will load them in their car. It’s pretty convenient.
Target launched a pilot program for the Drive Up service last year. Customers can order whatever they 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. You don’t even need to get out of the car.
Apparently, this is doing well for Target, which is why it has now decided to expand its Drive Up service to almost 270 cities across the United States. You 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 make your order, but it can normally do it in a shorter period of time. You then pull up and an employee will bring out the order within two minutes to your car. Now the service will be available to even more people.
