Target remodels 30 stores, expands fresh


Target has begun remodeling 30 general merchandise stores in the U.S. that will offer an expanded selection of fresh food.

The construction of the stores will be completed in October, according to a press release.

“By remodeling our stores and expanding the grocery selection, we’re able to bring an even more convenient shopping experience to Target’s guests,” said Annette Miller, senior vice president of grocery, Target in the release. “Just in time for the busy holiday season, these newly remodeled stores will offer a one-stop shop for all shopping needs, including fresh foods.”

Nearly 1,100 Target stores currently offer an expanded food layout.

At these Target stores, approximately 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.

At the newly remodeled locations, Target offers national food brands, as well as private label, including Archer Farms premium foods, Market Pantry value staples and meal options; and Sutton & Dodge premium quality USDA Choice beef.

Target stores currently being remodeled are part of the last of three cycles of remodels this year and span markets from Cincinnati, Ohio to Jacksonville, Fla. and Nashville, Tenn.

Beyond the grocery aisles, most of Target’s new and remodeled general merchandise stores also feature updates to the beauty aisles, the home department that offers easier navigation with wider aisles and lower product displays.

The shoe department will also be more comfortable with additional seating and mirrors, and the baby department is easier to shop with broader visibility between baby gear, supplies and apparel.
