Now having trouble keeping track of all your Amazon orders?
Here’s what you need to know.
Now that President Donald Trump has signed an executive order to curb opioid overdoses, some retailers have been scrambling to stay on top of their online traffic, including Target.
The company said Tuesday that its average online traffic reached more than 5 billion unique visitors in March and April, more than any month in the company’s history.
And Target said its monthly average online visitors reached more then 1.4 billion in March.
“We know there’s an opioid crisis, but it’s not just about drugs,” Target said in a statement.
“We’re also committed to making sure people with a medical condition can get the care they need.”
The retailer said the numbers are based on the company collecting data from more than 10 million visitors who visited its sites during that time.
“Target recognizes the importance of keeping its online presence fresh and vibrant,” the company said.
“And we continue to take steps to keep our sites up and running in a way that makes them a place people want to return to.”
The company also said it’s investing more in online education and is working to better target its digital advertising.
The retailer also said its online sales have grown more than 20 percent from the prior year, and its total online purchases have grown over 30 percent over the same time period.
Target said it has been working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help consumers stay on track.
The department also said last month that it will add 2 million new health care professionals to its workforce by the end of this year, bringing its total to over 2.5 million people.
