How to get more money from your local retailer by using Target’s focus
Target is starting to see a rise in the number of people using their focus section to get paid in cash.
In the latest data from the retailer’s focus section, the number is up by 4.3 per cent in the first half of the year, while focus customers are now paying an average of $8.19 in cash for their shopping experience.
The number of focus customers is up on the same period last year.
Target says it’s focused on getting the focus section in stores to be a “great place to shop”.
“We know that focusing is a big part of what we do, and it’s why we offer so many special offers and special promotions,” Target chief financial officer Mark Schleicher said in a statement.
“In the first six months of this year, we saw an increase in focus customers of 5.1 per cent, an increase of nearly 5,000 customers.”
“So focusing is one of the ways that we keep our focus on what matters to our customers.”
The increase in pay for shoppers with focus sections also comes at a time when Target is also expanding into the mobile world, where focus customers now make up nearly 40 per cent of the retailer.
“Target’s focus is focused on providing an excellent experience and offering great value for our customers.
We want to make sure our customers get the best value from their shopping,” Schleich said.
“We’re always looking to make the shopping experience better.”
Target has also seen a surge in focus group activity over the last few months, according to its CEO.
In a statement, Schleick said focus group participants have been more frequent over the past year, and more focused on the retailer than ever before.
“We’re seeing a rise of focus group participation as our focus section continues to grow, and we’ve seen more focus group members in the past six months than at any point in the last year,” he said.
Target says focus customers spend an average $8 in cash per day for their experience with focus, with the average customer spending an average total of $13.
This means that focus customers aren’t just shopping on Target, but they’re also shopping online and online at Target.
Target’s online focus section has seen an increase by nearly $3.4 million in the second quarter of this season.
