Remodeled Targets to Feature More Fresh Food
Fresh food selections will be expanded at 90 Target stores across the United States, scheduled to be completed in late June.
These stores will be the second of three cycles of remodels for Target this year. Stores scheduled for the June remodel cycle span markets across the country, from Des Moines, Iowa, to El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
“We are excited to incorporate our enhanced food assortment into additional stores in June,” said Annette Miller, Target’s senior VP of grocery. “By remodeling these stores, we bring an expanded offering of fresh food and added convenience to our guests in these communities.”
Nearly 1,000 Target stores currently offer an expanded food layout. At these stores, about 10,000 square feet is dedicated to a vast array of fresh food choices, including a curated assortment of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods, in addition to dry and frozen offerings. By the end of the year, more than 1,100 Target stores will offer the expanded fresh food layout.
Target’s expanded food assortment includes a selection of national food brands, plus Target’s own brands, including Archer Farms premium foods, Market Pantry value staples and meal options, and Sutton & Dodge USDA Choice beef. Beyond the grocery aisles, most of Target’s new and remodeled general merchandise stores also feature updates in other areas, including home, beauty and apparel.
Minneapolis-based Target Corp. operates 1,765 stores across the United States, with its first stores in Canada to open in 2013.
