Target distributes the vast majority of its merchandise to the stores through a network of 40 distribution centers. Common carriers ship general merchandise to and from its distribution centers. Vendors or third party distributors ship certain food items and other merchandise directly to its stores. Merchandise sold through our digital channels is distributed to the guests via common carriers (from stores, distribution centers, vendors, and third party distributors), delivery via the wholly-owned subsidiary, Shipt, Inc. (Shipt), and through guest pick-up at Target stores. Using stores as fulfillment points allows improved product availability and delivery times and also reduces Target's shipping costs.
