Target Is About to Start Testing Next-Day Home Delivery

May 09, 2017

Target plans to test a next-day home delivery service called Target Restock in the Minneapolis area, the company said in a blog post on Monday.

The company said household essentials ordered online, like laundry detergent and coffee, will be packaged at a nearby store, allowing for delivery the next day.

Target (tgt) and other major brick and mortar retailers are investing heavily in their e-commerce businesses as they try to gain ground on Amazon (amzn), which revolutionized online retail through aggressive pricing and speedy delivery.

Minneapolis-based Target lagged behind competitors in e-commerce, but is now stepping up its emphasis on such sales. The company had signed a deal with online delivery service Instacart to pick up Target groceries and deliver them to customers in some cities.

The company intends to compete with rivals Wal-Mart Stores (wmt) and Amazon for same-day delivery.
