Target to remodel general merchandise stores to include fresh food layout
MINNEAPOLIS — Target is set to complete remodels for more than 100 general merchandise stores later this month, the retailer said. The remodeled Target 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 pre-packaged baked goods, in addition to dry and frozen offerings.
Nearly 900 Target stores currently offer the expanded food layout. Target said that in addition to the 100-plus stores that will be overhauled this month, the retailer expects to remodel a total of 230 general merchandise Target stores to incorporate the expanded fresh food layout in 2012. A list of the stores that will receive the expanded grocery layout can be found here.
“Bringing fresh food to Target means our guests only have to make one stop to stock up on all of their essentials,” Target SVP grocery Annette Miller said. “This year, even more of our guests will experience the added convenience of one-stop shopping as we remodel hundreds of additional Target stores and bring our fresh food layout to markets across the country.”
In addition to the grocery aisles, most of the Target's new and remodeled general merchandise stores also feature updates in other areas, including more visual beauty aisles; wider aisles and lower product displays in the home department; additional seating and mirrors in the shoe department and broader visibility between baby gear, supplies and apparel in the baby department.
