Target opens its next-day delivery service Restock to more people

They'd been testing Restock with Redcard holders in a few Minnesota cities.

Target's new next-day delivery service can now be used by everyone – not just people with a Redcard.

The Bullseye launched a test of its Restock service in the Twin Cities, Stillwater, St. Cloud and Red Wing areas in June. You could go online, order a box of household goods, and get it delivered to you the next day for $4.99.

But it was only open to Redcard holders.

Apparently it's been going well, because Target announced a big expansion of Restock.

One, it's now open to everyone – not just those with a Redcard.

Two, they added baby food and school supplies to the list of items you could buy through Restock. Until now it had been limited to baby, beauty, food and beverage, health, household essentials, personal care, and pets.

And three, Target has added Saturday deliveries. Now a Friday order submitted before 2 p.m. gets to you in 24 hours.

Restock will also be available in the Denver and Dallas-Fort Worth areas.

This could eventually turn into a same-day delivery service. Target just bought a big transportation software company called Grand Junction. It's a move that signals the Bullseye isn't going to let Amazon own the on-demand delivery space without serious competition.

Target is also testing an order pick-up service, where the stuff you buy gets brought to your car. But it's only for employees right now. 

Target is also really happy with its last quarter

On Wednesday, Target revealed its second quarter sales. And in general things went pretty well (which they did not expect a few months ago).

Traffic in stores was up 2.1 percent, and comparable sales were 1.3 percent higher than last year. 

Online sales shot up too, increasing 32 percent.

The positive news means Target is going to remodel even more stores than it planned. Initially the retailer had eyed about 250 for a revamp – now more than 300 will get the treatment.

The company also touted it's Cat & Jack kids' clothing line (the one with that science shirt for girls everyone loved) as a $2 billion brand, and reiterated its plans to introduce some new exclusive apparel brands in the coming months.

Target employs more than 26,000 people in Minnesota, making it the sixth-biggest employer in the state.
