Target clearly plans to make 2018 its year because it’s pulling out all the stops to make it the best place to shop and work. Among several new updates, Target will raise its minimum wage to $12 in 2018, as part of its previously-announced commitment to raise it to $15 by 2020.

Target wants to make the shopping experience for its customers even better (yes, it’s possible!) and it’s starting by making its employees happier with better pay. In addition to raising the minimum wage for its workers, the company is also tripling the size of its remodeling campaign, as it now plans to update over 300 stores across the country.

Several services that Target now offers will also be getting an expansion. Free two-day shipping is now available on even more products you can purchase online. The new Drive Up service, which allows you to place an order and pay online and then simply drive up and get your items delivered to your car curbside will be rolling out from 50 locations to 1,000 by the end of 2018.

Last, but certainly not least, Target’s new service that delivers in-store purchases to your home later the same day (just think, shopping without having to lug bags from the car!) will expand to several locations including Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
