Minneapolis-based Target Corp. has announced new locations for its small-format stores throughout Chicago and New York. According to Forbes.com, the stores will begin opening this summer.
The smaller Target locations (originally branded as TargetExpress) are scaled down to 17,000 sq. ft. to 50,000 sq. ft., and are aimed at younger shoppers in cities, suburban areas and on college campuses. They’re designed for quick trips for essentials like beauty products, groceries, home décor and electronics. Some locations offer same-day delivery, a CVS Pharmacy, Starbucks and online order pickup.
The new stores are set for Wicker Park, Chicago (opening summer 2018); Upper East Side, New York (70th Street and Third Avenue, opening 2019); Staten Island, New York (Forest Avenue Plaza, opening 2019); and Astoria, Queens (Ditmars Boulevard and 23rd Avenue, opening 2022).
The company plans to have 130 small-format stores nationwide by the end of 2019.
