Target’s Drive Up Service
Over the years major retailers such as Walmart, Sam's Club, Target and many more have been making headlines over topics varying from online ordering, wage raises, yodeling kids and much more. However, recently Target has announced their very own version of pick and saves drive up service. They are simply calling it “Drive up”. Target says that their newly introduced ship from store option where consumers could order items off the shelves and have them shipped straight to their homes become a huge success over the holiday season. Fueling the idea of consumers no longer having to wait 2 days for their items to arrive but just simply driving up to a designated parking spot. Target says the app works by guests placing an order and getting a confirmation when their order is ready (taking no longer than 30 minutes). Guests then are able to pick when they will arrive and items will be brought out to the guests car in no longer than 5 minutes.
Dawn Block, senior vice president of Target Digital says “Stopping for diapers and toilet paper may not be glamorous, but it’s still on a lot of our to-do lists. Drive Up is our latest effort to make it easier and faster for busy guests to conveniently get what they need, and simply get back to their day.” Not only is drive up now a change to the way consumers are shopping but it also is a new generation of careers available that previously had not been. Jobs are becoming available at pay rate of Target’s $12 minimum, adding to the overall health of the economy.
