Grand Rapids and Lansing are two of the first cities to get curbside pickup options for fresh and frozen items at Target, company representatives said Tuesday.

The contactless shopping method was previously available for items in the home, apparel and essentials categories, but will be expanded to food options.

Target representatives said the option would initially be available at more than 400 stores in the Midwest, including stores in:

  • Colorado (Denver)
  • Illinois (Chicago)
  • Indiana (Evansville, Indianapolis)
  • Iowa (Des Moines)
  • Kentucky (Lexington, Louisville)
  • Michigan (Grand Rapids, Lansing)
  • Minnesota (Duluth, Twin Cities)
  • Missouri (Kansas City)
  • Ohio (Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus)
  • Utah (Salt Lake City)
  • Wisconsin (Madison, Milwaukee)

Drive up (curbside) and order pickup (in-store) services are free at all locations and don't require a membership.

Target representatives said they expected to offer the services for fresh and frozen products at 1,500 stores by the holiday season.
