The deadline to order and ship packages has passed.

With just a few days left until Christmas, Target has extended its contactless pick-up and at-home delivery services. 

Last-minute shoppers can place orders to be picked up in the store or through Target's drive-up option until 5 p.m. on Dec. 24, Target announced Monday. They can also have items delivered to their home via same-day delivery through Shipt. 

“Target teams across the country are ready to help guests get their last-minute items safely and easily,” Mark Schindele, Target’s chief stores officer, said in a statement. “All season long, our nearly 1,900 stores have been delivering holiday joy to our guests no matter how they want to shop, and we’ve dedicated even more team members to our same-day services to make sure guests can get their online orders in plenty of time to celebrate.”

Ahead of the holiday season, Target increased its offerings that are available for pickup and delivery, as well as doubled its number of drive-up parking spaces.

KSTP reports malls and stores are extra busy shoppers flock to stores to get their last-minute shopping done as there are concerns about the supply chain and gifts ordered online not arriving in time.
