Target adding expanded food layout to 230 stores
New York -- Target Corp. will complete remodels at more than 100 general merchandise Target stores by March 25. The locations will be the first of three cycles of remodels for Target this year. In total, the chain expects to remodel 230 general merchandise Target stores to incorporate the expanded fresh food layout in 2012.
Stores scheduled for the March remodel cycle span markets across the country, from Spokane, Washington to Oshkosh, Wisconsin and Chattanooga, Tenn. At remodeled Target stores, approximately 10,000 sq. ft. will be 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.
Nearly 900 Target stores currently offer the expanded food layout and guest feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
Beyond the grocery aisles, most of Target’s new and remodeled general merchandise stores also feature updates in other areas to further enhance the shopping experience for guests. In the beauty aisles, guests will experience a more visual environment, making it easier to browse a mix of everyday essentials and exclusive brands. The home department offers easier navigation with wider aisles and lower product displays. The shoe department is now more comfortable with additional seating and mirrors, and the baby department is easier to shop with broader visibility between baby gear, supplies and apparel.
