Target will add "Buy Online, Pick Up in Store" option (Poll)

submitted on October 24, 2013 by HouTex in "Stores / Merchants"
Target is following the lead of stores like Staples, Walmart, Best Buy, Toys'R'Us, and Gap to roll out a "Buy Online, Pick Up in Store" service. Online shoppers using either a mobile device or computer will be able to buy items online and pick them up the same day at a Target store where the item is in stock. The service was tested in select stores in October, is currently in 1800 stores, and should be available in all U.S. stores by Nov. 1.
1. Have you used this option at other stores?
2. Will you try it at Target?
3. Will it change your holiday shopping?

    I use it often at Walmart. They send an automated text that says respond to text when you are near and we will have it ready for you. Never happens and I always have to wait.

    This could possibly have a big impact on Black Friday!

      I wonder if they will offer an exclusion for Black Friday.

    Have used this at walmart, but it seems to take a lot longer to get product. I rather pay for shipping and get it quick!

    Ditto, it's about time.

    Weird, I was just looking for it today. I got frustrated, then wound up sending someone out with a list, LOL. I'm still not quite sure if that particular store had it.

    Anyway, the site says that it takes about 4 hours. That seems a little long, I wasn't expecting that. Also, I couldn't seem to access the full Grocery department online to order pick-up. That was inconvenient.

    I LOVE Walgreens Web Pick-Up service. They give you a 1-hr. pick up time (sometimes 2-hr. during super busy times). However, the one nearby is usually done early in 20-30 minutes. You can even choose perishable grocery items online to pick up. They also usually have some deal going on. Smile
