Target will put 15 new stores on the map this year with three distinct store formats – eight TargetExpress, one CityTarget and six general merchandise stores.
“Our store growth looks different today than it did five years ago, driven by guests’ expectations for ease and personalization in their shopping experience,” said Tina Tyler, executive vice president and chief stores officer, Target. “Smaller formats like TargetExpress and CityTarget offer customized assortments and services to meet the needs of guests who are increasingly moving into urban centers. In our general merchandise stores, we’re embracing a test and learn philosophy, innovating with layouts and experiences and bringing digital and brick and mortar together like never before.”
