City Target

1 post in this topic

I put this in the Coffee House because it's simply an entry on the Wiki Target Corp. article I discovered while doing some research, with no connection to Orlando (at least so far). But, good heavens, what possibilities for downtown if it works elsewhere. I hope the SoDo SuperTarget isn't considered too close to make it a viable option down the road.

CityTarget

On February 15, 2011, Target announced plans to open its newest store concept, called CityTarget. The first store will be opened in Chicago.[59][60] The store will allocate approximately 55,000 sq ft (5,100 m2) to its sales floor. CityTarget stores will carry fresh food, clothing, and apartment essentials. Items too bulky for urban apartments or for customers to carry will not be stocked in a CityTarget, even if such items are commonly available in traditional Target stores.

Urban stores

Target has used its urban store concept to open multiple story stores in city centers such as in Annapolis, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Los Angeles, Glendale, Chicago, Pasadena, California, San Diego, Seattle, Stamford, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, and Minneapolis within the corporation's headquarters complex. In July 2010, a Target store opened in New York's East Harlem.[61] The company also opened an urban store in Pittsburgh's East Liberty neighborhood in July 2011.[62]

The first City Target will open in 2012. City Target is the name for a downtown, smaller format Target store. The assortment will be edited towards urban living, but will carry many of the same products. The stores will still look and feel like Target but many will be multi-level stores in existing landmark buildings, not the usual strip mall or stand-alone locations. The first stores are set to open in Chicago, LA and New York in mid-2012, and Puerto Rico in 2013-2014.
