Fresh Foods to Expand at Target
Minneapolis-based Target Corp. plans to open 21 new stores in 12 states this year, including five stores in California, a third store in Hawaii and a SuperTarget in Minnesota.
“Target takes great pride in designing stores that meet the needs of our guests and the communities we serve,” said John Griffith, Target executive VP. “With the addition of an expanded fresh food assortment, our new stores will offer guests everything they need in one convenient location.”
The general merchandise stores will include an expanded fresh-food assortment, providing greater convenience and value to guests. At about 135,000 square feet, the stores will offer basic fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and baked goods, and employ 100 to 250 team members.
The new SuperTarget, opening in Woodbury, Minn., will feature a full-line, full-service supermarket, including a bakery and deli and certified organic produce. At about 174,000 square feet, it will also feature all the amenities of a general merchandise store and employ 200 to 300 team members.
Target operates 1,752 stores in 49 states nationwide.
