Expanded Initiatives: Target reported comparable sales increased 3.6% in Q4 2017, thanks in part to strong traffic growth in both stores and ecommerce. The retailer also said it will expand its Drive Up service to 1,000 stores by the end of 2018. The service lets consumers place orders online and have them brought directly to their cars.
Speaking of Expansion: Amazon is expanding its Whole Foods Market delivery service to Atlanta and San Francisco. Via the service—which first launched last month in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach—Prime customers can get Whole Foods groceries delivered within a 2-hour window.
