As Richmond's cold winter weather sets in, the Delivery Wars heat up! It was announced earlier this week that Target has acquired Shipt, a company that currently sends people out to select, purchase and deliver groceries from various stores. Target has indicated that it expects to expand Shipt to add more products, including home goods and electronics, as it and other retailers strive to catch up with Amazon.
