Now available in almost 270 stores throughout the South and Southeast, this convenient, time-saving service allows guests to place orders via the Target app, then have their items brought out to their cars by a store team member.

The company said it expects to offer the new service in 1,000 stores by year's end.

In addition to Washington, Target will roll out the in-store delivery service in Boston, Chicago and San Francisco. There will be a $7 flat fee.

Oversized items, like furniture, will cost $25 for delivery. Customers have "told us how much they love the service's ease and convenience", Target said in a statement. When the process is complete, they'll leave their purchases at the store, and return home to accept delivery during their window.

Target says stores offering the delivery service will display signage and its cashiers will tell customers about the option at checkout.

"Thanks to investments in our supply chain and digital operations, we're able use our stores to fulfill guests' digital orders with flexibility and speed", said said Mike McNamara, Target's chief information and digital officer in a release. But now, Target will allow urban customers to shop in-store, and have their purchases delivered to their home that same day.

Target is expanding Drive Up, a service that brings online orders out to customers' cars within minutes. Plans call for Drive Up to be offered at nearly 1,000 stores by the close of 2018.

The retail chain announced Tuesday customers at 270 stores can buy items without leaving their vehicle.
