Shoppers can then have some groceries, housewares and electronics delivered to their homes hours after ordering thanks to the service Shipt, USAToday reported.

Target bought Shipt in December for $550 million.

Shipt uses personal shoppers who select items that are ordered and then deliver them to shoppers and costs $99 a year for its membership-based grocery delivery service.
