Target extends fresh food offering to 30 stores

MINNEAPOLIS — Target announced it is remodeling 30 of its stores to offer an expanded selection of affordable and quality fresh foods to its customers.

Target stores currently being remodeled are part of the last of three cycles of remodels this year and span markets from Cincinnati to Jacksonville, Fla., and Nashville, Tenn. Slated for completion in October, the stores will dedicate approximately 10,000 sq. ft. to a vast array of fresh food choices, including a curated assortment of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and prepackaged baked goods, in addition to dry and frozen offerings.

"By remodeling our stores and expanding the grocery selection, we’re able to bring an even more convenient shopping experience to Target's guests," Target SVP grocery Annette Mille said. "Just in time for the busy holiday season, these newly remodeled stores will offer a one-stop shop for all shopping needs, including fresh foods."

In addition to the expanded food layout, Target also is updating other areas of its stores to further enhance the shopping experience for customers:

  • 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; and

  • The shoe department now includes additional seating and mirrors, and the baby department touts broader visibility between baby gear, supplies and apparel.
