Easy and convenient shopping
It's more convenient than ever to shop for the holidays, thanks to Target's investments in its team as well as best-in-class fulfillment services like Drive Up, Order Pickup and Same-Day Delivery. This includes:
- Seasonal Support: Essential to delivering a great guest experience are hundreds of thousands of dedicated team members — and Target is committed to providing them with career growth and development, and a market-leading wage and benefits package every day and throughout this holiday season.
- Target is starting the season with stability in its workforce and a commitment to scheduling flexibility for its experienced and engaged team. This holiday season, by popular request, Target will continue giving existing team members the opportunity to add extra hours to build their desired schedule. The retailer has also successfully established an On Demand team — a flexible workforce that includes nearly 45,000 team members — who have the option to pick up shifts on an as-desired basis, depending on staffing needs and team member availability.

- Even Better Drive Up Service: Target has invested in its free curbside service to make it even more useful — and enjoyable — for guests. The retailer has added more than 27,000 Drive Up stalls, providing plenty of capacity for the peak shopping season. This is also the first holiday season guests can enjoy two new service enhancements: the ability to make a return and place a Starbucks order with Drive Up.
- Speedier Next-Day Delivery: Target has expanded to 10 sortation centers in its supply chain network since last holiday season, bringing even more next-day deliveries to guests.
