New York City retailer Target is testing a “customer-service” system where customers can order clothing without a physical store, and the service is expected to roll out in stores in the next few weeks.
According to the New York Post, Target is using a technology called “smart clothing,” which will let customers order clothing from a mobile app.
Customers will have the option of picking from one of five different clothing categories, with the ability to pay for a gift or gift card.
The “smart clothes” technology is being rolled out by Target, which is testing the service with customers.
Target is the first major retailer to launch the service.
Target’s “smart garments” feature will be implemented in stores starting in the fall, according the Post.
According the Post, “customers who choose to wear clothes in stores will be able to select the clothes they want to order through the app, where they will be asked to pay using a credit card or giftcard, or the company’s gift card payment service.”
Customers can also order from Target’s website.
“Customers will be directed to a list of clothing styles and sizes, and can then select a shirt, pants, sweater, or coat from the collection and enter a purchase amount for a credit or gift.”
The service will be available in select Target stores in fall, which are expected to open in January.
Customers can order from the Target website.
The company says that the service will make shopping easier for customers, because the items will be shipped directly to their homes.
Target says it has launched “smart apparel” in the past.
Target started using a similar service in 2011.
The concept was designed to help employees make purchases faster and cut down on the amount of time it takes to get items to stores, which can be costly.
The New York Times reported last year that Target was testing a similar technology called a “smart-contract” service in stores.
Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel has said that the company is testing “smart cloth,” but the company did not reveal what the new service is about.
