MINNEAPOLIS — Target announced plans to remodel several stores in the Charlotte, N.C., area.
According to the company, the remodeling began March 27 and includes such features as an open-market fresh food layout, complete with a selection of fresh produce, fresh meat and baked goods. The new layout also features reinventions in several other areas throughout the store, including beauty, home, baby and shoes.
The remodeled stores, according to Target, will offer guests approximately 40% more food offerings (on average) than a general merchandise location. “We heard from our guests that they wanted more fresh food options in the convenience of their local Target store,” said Annette Miller, SVP grocery at Target. “Our guests lead busy lives, and with the increased food selection, we’ve made it easy to complete their grocery list or pick up tonight’s dinner during their regular Target shopping trip.”
In addition to the expanded food layout, remodeled stores also include upgraded beauty department displays featuring softer lighting and curved fixtures. The home department has added wider aisles and lower product fixtures, offering easier navigation. The baby department has broadened the visibility between baby gear, supplies and apparel. The shoe department provides better product visibility and has enhanced guest comfort with additional seating and mirrors.

Charlotte Midtown, 900 Metropolitan Ave., Charlotte, N.C.;
Charlotte South, 7860 Rea Rd., Charlotte, N.C.;
NE Charlotte, 8120 University City Blvd., Charlotte, N.C.; and
