Target next-day delivery may be coming


A next-day delivery service from Target isn’t available in Dayton yet -- but “stay tuned,” Target is saying.

The retail company announced that it is offering “Target Restock,” a next-day delivery service of household goods, available “coast to coast,” the company said.

But a cursory search on the Target Restock web site showed that the service isn’t yet available in Dayton-area ZIP codes yet. 

That may change in time, the company said. 

“Apologies for the disappointment, but stay tuned,” the company’s @AskTarget Twitter account said Thursday. “Target Restock will continue to launch in several markets throughout 2018.”

The deliveries are free for all Target REDcard purchases, and cost $2.99 for other orders. There is no membership fee, the company said.

The service will reach “more than 75 percent” of the U.S. population, Target said.

But not the Dayton area, at least not yet. A quick search at the Restock site Thursday morning of Dayton-area ZIP codes show that the service doesn’t appear to be available in this area, at least for the moment. 

Search attempts for ZIP codes linked to suburbs south and east of Dayton show that the service isn’t yet available in those areas either.

Customers may order household goods online by 7 p.m., Monday through Friday and have “Restock boxes” delivered the next day.

“Target Restock is another way we’re making life easier for our busy, budget-conscious guests,” Dawn Block, Target’s senior vice president of digital, said in an announcement. “Our guests love the speed and convenience of the service. And now that Target Restock is an even better value, we think the service will become increasingly popular.”

Orders can be up to 45 pounds, monitored by an online tracker, the company said.
