NEW YORK — Target is expanding its retail clinic presence in the Chicago area, according to published reports.

Construction is scheduled to start on May 28, and grand openings are planned for Aug. 18. The Target on Division Street, scheduled to open in October, will also have a clinic.

Target is planning to open 14 new clinics around the country, for a total of 68. Other locations include Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, N.C., northern Virginia and Baltimore. 

The clinics provide more than 60 services, including vaccinations, provided by licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
