retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• Target CEO Brian Cornell tells CNBC that his company’s acquisition of Shipt, the grocery delivery service, means that “if you order, in a couple of hours, I'll put it right on your kitchen table.”

Cornell says that “he plans to remodel 300 in 2018 and open new stores while expanding the Target digital presence, making Shipt available across the country. Target will also move more stores into urban areas, such as New York City, Boston and Chicago, as well as to college campuses, according to Cornell. Some of these are smaller-format locations, where shoppers can rush in and rush out, quickly grabbing items on the go.”
