NEW YORK (AP) — It’s something stores like walmart and Best Buy are already doing. And now, Target is getting into the act.

The retailer is launching a service that lets you order products online — then pick them up in stores.

The company says the service is now available in about half its 1,800 U.S. stores — and will be expanded to the rest of them by Nov. 1.

It’s an effort to pick up more sales among tech-savvy customers with little time to browse a store’s shelves.

Target is also bringing social media into its stores and its catalogs.

Starting Nov. 18, Target will highlight about 100 holiday products across all areas of its stores that have been trending well on Pinterest. It will also refer to Pinterest in its holiday catalogs.
