Goal set to open more stores at Apple Stores

Target has expanded its partnership with Apple, more than tripling its Apple at Target locations, giving more guests a one-stop shop for Apple products and accessories.

Members of Target Circle, the retailer’s free loyalty program, now have access to a four-month free trial of Apple Fitness+ with no purchase necessary.

Target will also have special holiday deals on select Apple services, including Apple Music, Apple Arcade, Apple News+ and iCloud+, some including up to five months free, available through Target Circle.

“For years, Target has been a destination for Apple products. We are now excited to deepen our partnership with Apple so that even more guests can access the exceptional Apple store shopping experience at Target,” said Jill Sando, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Target. “Through Target Circle, our popular free-to-join loyalty program, we’re also giving our guests the chance to try services like Apple Fitness+ for free with no purchase required.”

Sando added, “Guests love the branded and immersive retail experiences we’re creating with Apple and other partners, including Disney, Ulta Beauty and Levi’s. With this expansion from Apple, we’re giving guests even more reasons to choose Target for all of their shopping and tech needs.”

In February 2021, Target introduced the first Apple store at Target, elevating Target’s status as a destination for electronics and accessories and adding to Target’s legacy of creating inspiring brand experiences in stores and online with strategic partners including Apple, Ulta Beauty, Disney and Levi’s, the company said.

Now, Target has more than tripled its Apple presence at Target to more than 150 locations across the country, just in time for holiday shopping. Each location features Apple-trained Target technology consultants and double the space dedicated to Apple products, including the newly released Apple Watch Ultra, Apple Watch Series 8, AirPods Pro (2nd generation), iPad, iPad Pro, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14.

Guests can also shop the entire Apple assortment at Target on Target.com and through the Target app, where they’ll find videos and product comparisons. As always, guests can enjoy 5% off all Apple purchases and free shipping on orders of $35 or more when they use their Target RedCard, and take advantage of free expedited pickup and Drive Up orders at just two hours with no minimum purchase. . For added convenience, guests can use Same Day Delivery with Shipt to have orders delivered to their doorstep in as little as an hour, with no membership fee required.
