Target to offer next-day delivery in St. Louis”

With the expansion, Target Restock is now available in 10 markets, with San Francisco becoming the 11th one when it kicks off there in mid-October.

Target's St. Louis area stores are now offering next-day delivery of 15,000 household items.

Target is expanding the coverage for its Restock next-day essentials delivery service to eight new U.S. markets.

However, Target is now charging $4.99 per box (up to 45 pounds) versus Amazon Prime Pantry's $5.99. The site tracks the capacity of the box and allows customers to order as many or as little items as they would like. If the order is placed by 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, it will arrive at the customer's home the next business day.

At the time of the announcement, Target was piloting the service at its store in New York's Tribeca neighborhood, with plans to expand to other stores in the city before the year's end, and then to additional major cities in 2018.

So far, some of the most popular items for Target Restock in the three existing markets - Dallas, Denver and Minneapolis - have been on-the-go snacks, beverages, macaroni-and-cheese, cereal and paper towels.

Target's next-day delivery service focused on everyday essentials, which has been in testing over the summer, is now expanding to eight major metros, making it available to over 70 million people, or about one-fifth of the USA population. "If we can help our busy guests check off their shopping lists quickly and more easily, that's more time they can spend with their families".

Target and Walmart are trying to get out ahead of Amazon.
