Target is testing a new program that will allow shoppers to purchase a variety of household items online with the promise of next day delivery. The new service, dubbed Target Restock, aims to fix that.

According to a notice posted on the corporate website today (8 May), the pilot service will be called "Target Restock". They can fill a box with multiple items and be charged a flat delivery fee. The boxes will be packed at the nearby store, and the ordered before 1:30 pm will be delivered the next business day. Spokesman Eddie Baeb says the company doesn't have a fee set but intends to be "very competitive" with similar offerings. The company had signed a deal with online delivery service Instacart to pick up Target groceries and deliver them to customers in some cities.

Baeb said there are no current plans for a nationwide rollout, and any expansion depends on the performance of the service.

"We want to gauge demand among our best guests, and this also allows us to build a more personalized experience for guests who take part in the pilot", the company spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, Target quietly raised its threshold for free shipping to $35 from $25 on Sunday, matching Wal-Mart's current level.
