Target shoppers will now have access to more fresh and frozen grocery items, due to the Minneapolis-based retailer's efforts to expand its pickup and drive-up services.

In a release issued Thursday, Target reported it would add the expanded grocery assortment to stores in the Midwest, following a successful pilot program in both the Twin Cities and Kansas City. Target plans to make expanded selection available in more than 400 stores by the end of the month and in more than 1,500 stores by the holiday season.


The selection includes about 750 produce, dairy, bakery, meat and frozen items. Once an order is placed, Target states items will be ready to pick up in a few hours. Those using the drive-up services can get their groceries through a contactless process if they'd prefer not to enter the store. Additionally, Target states a membership or a minimum order amount isn't required.

"During a time when even more people are looking for different ways to get the items they need, we’ll continue to invest in making Target the easiest and safest place to shop," John Mulligan, Target’s chief operating officer, said in a statement.
