MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — An aggressive campaign at Target to let customers do more online is paying off.
The retailer on Wednesday exceeded first quarter expectations on just about every level, saying the same day services it's rolled out in recent years drove more than 25 percent of comparable sales growth.
Target Corp. reported profits of $795 million, or $1.53 per share, beating Wall Street expectations by a dime, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research.
Revenue was $17.63 billion, also beating forecasts.
Target expects its per-share earnings this quarter of between $1.52 and $1.72, and full-year earnings in the range of $5.75 to $6.05 per share.
