Thought CityTarget was small enough for ya?
Target is experimenting with a relatively tiny store in Minneapolis that is even smaller than the downsized CityTarget stores it began introducing more than two years ago.
The new TargetExpress store, to be located in a building under construction near the University of Minnesota, will test the concept of a store that is 20,000 sq. ft, only a fraction the size of Target’s big box stores, which are 125,000 to 180,000 sq. ft., and much smaller than even its CityTarget stores, which are 60,000 to 100,000 sq. ft.
The first TargetExpress will be in the ground floor of a new apartment building called the Marshall. The test store is scheduled to open July 27, in time to serve students arriving for the fall semester. The store will offer groceries, pharmacy products, basic clothing, home decorating products and electronics.
