Target DC to Open in 2006

Minneapolis, Target is building a 1.6 million-sq.-ft. regional distribution center in Rialto, Calif. Construction on the site, located at Casa Grande and Alder Avenue, began this fall and is expected to be completed in summer 2006. Regional distribution centers receive shipments from suppliers, ship products directly to Target stores and provide storage space for merchandise.

Target currently has 22 distribution centers in 19 states.

“The new Rialto distribution facility will help us better serve existing stores and prepare for future growth,” said Mitch Stover, senior vice president, distribution services, Target Corp.
