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.

REVIEW: ‘It Follows’ is the best American horror film in a decade

In this image released by Brigade Marketing, actress Maika Monroe appears in a scene of It Follows, directed by David Robert Mitchell. “It Follows,” has been arguably the buzziest American film at Cannes next to Bennett Miller’s wrestling drama “Foxcatcher,” which boasts a far more famous cast and a major premiere at the Palais des Festival.

"It Follows" is a horror movie worthy of classic comparisons.
