NEW YORK >> Target will be offering two-day shipping with no minimum purchase this holiday season, raising the stakes in the delivery wars during the busiest shopping season of the year.

The offer, announced today, will start Nov. 1 and end Dec. 22. It’s part of the retailer’s move to bulk up its delivery services for customers as it competes with online leader Amazon.

In March, the Minneapolis-based chain announced two-day shipping on hundreds of thousands of items for shoppers who spend $35 or more.

In January 2017, Walmart began offering two-day shipping for online purchases over $35 on millions of frequently purchased items like household essentials. And with its annual $119 Prime membership, Amazon members can also get free two-day shipping.
