Richmond Delivery Wars Update: Target Enters the Fray

Posted on by John W. Anderson in Commercial Real Estate, RVA Grocery and Delivery Wars

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.

What is the driver behind all of the Delivery Wars? Is it laziness or simply being too busy to go to a brick and mortar store to purchase products? Stay tuned - I'll have a complete overview of who is delivering what to whom and where early next year!
