Target reported web sales increased more than 40% year over year during December 2016 and more than 30% for the combined November-December 2016 holiday season. E-commerce sales gains partly offset a 3% year-over-year, comparable-sales decline during the same period, but not enough to prevent an overall sales decline. “Our team has made substantial progress in positioning Target for long-term success by improving the shopping experience both in stores and on, transforming our supply chain and technology to support every way our guests want to shop and developing new store formats that allow us to reach new guests in dense urban and suburban markets,” CEO Brian Cornell said.
