New York -- Target is testing a registry program designed specifically for students heading off to college, according to a report by TheStreet. The college registry, available in some 40 stores, offers a variety of categories, including furniture, storage & organization, electronics, décor, bedding and bath.
The new service is high-tech and student friendly, using iPads instead of in-store kiosks. To select items throughout the store, the customer uses an iPod Touche instead of the typical scanning gun.
The service allows shoppers to order products from Target's website on a recurring schedule and have the items delivered directly to the student, TheStreet said.
