Target is gearing up for the holiday shopping season by offering 12 new exclusive brands and free shipping on orders in November.
Target has increased the number of stores that ship online orders to guests’ homes to more than 1,400, making the delivery process faster and more efficient for guests. In addition, “Target.com will offer Free Ship to all guests beginning Nov. 1, with no minimum purchase required,” Target announced this week.

The retailer is offering several new ways for customers to shop before the holiday season. Services include order pickup and GiftNow on Target.com. The new GiftNow service allows customers to click the GiftNow button on products on Target.com and send an e-gift box, which “allows the recipient to accept the gift, change the color or size, or choose something entirely different, all before anything ships,” Target said.
“While there’s an incredible amount of change happening across retail, we’re focused on doing what’s best for our guest and leaning into what makes Target special, particularly during the holidays,” said Target CEO and Chairman Brian Cornell.
Target will also introduce more than 12 new brands by the end of 2018, including the new Hearth & Hand with Magnolia brand by Fixer Upper couple Chip and Joanna Gaines. The brand will launch in stores on Nov. 5, featuring 300 products including tabletop, home decor and giftables.
