Target Corp holiday season sales jumped as Americans ordered everything from home goods, toys and groceries online, helping the company exceed Wall Street expectations with an 118% surge in digital sales for the quarter.
With Covid-19 disrupting traditional brick-and-mortar retail, e-commerce saw a boom in 2020. But according to a new report from Searchmetrics, fashion retailers lagged behind in terms of online search visibility.
The American retail giant has announced a series of changes to its executive leadership team, including the appointment of Christina Hennington to the newly created role of VP and chief growth officer.
Priced from $3 to $150 with most items under $25, the collection includes home items like tableware, quilts and pillows, pet apparel and accessories, as well as apparel like Levi's trucker jackets and sleepwear.
Target reported a 17.2% rise in comparable sales for the holiday season on Wednesday as its online sales more than doubled, thanks to faster deliveries and higher demand for home goods, electronics and beauty products.
