Target expands drive-up services across Florida

- Target stores in Florida and Texas are now offering drive-up service.

The retail chain announced Tuesday customers at 270 stores can buy items without leaving their car. Orders can be placed with the Target mobile app and should be ready in less than two hours. Customers will need to notify Target through the mobile app when they are headed to the store, then park in designated spots and employees bring out the orders.

The service began last fall in Minneapolis, where the company is headquartered. Target hopes to expand the service to nearly 1,000 stores across the U.S. by the end of the year. Other states with Target's drive-up service are Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and South Carolina.

Walmart officers a similar drive-up service for groceries at some locations, but Target's service applies to any in-stock items at the store. Both retailers have previously offered in-store pickup.

Additional details on Target's latest service can be found through their website
