Store remodels represent significant investment in Detroit community
MINNEAPOLIS--(Business Wire)--
Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) is pleased to announce that fresh grocery is coming to
the Detroit area as part of the company`s ongoing effort to remodel stores
across the country. In addition to featuring a large selection of affordable
fresh foods, the new layout will include reinventions in several other
departments such as beauty, home, shoes and baby, aimed at providing guests with
an exceptional one-stop shopping experience. 

Remodeled stores will include approximately 10,000 square feet dedicated to
fresh food, including a curated assortment of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat
and pre-packaged baked goods, in addition to dry and frozen offerings. Guests
will also find a selection of national food brands, as well as award-winning
Target owned brands including Archer Farms premium foods, Market Pantry value
staples and meal options, and Sutton & Dodge premium quality USDA Choice beef. 

Beyond the grocery aisles, the remodeled stores will also feature other
enhancements. 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 will offer easier navigation with wider
aisles and lower product displays. The shoe department will be more comfortable
with additional seating and mirrors, and the baby department will become easier
to shop with broader visibility between baby gear, supplies and apparel. 

"We`ve heard from our guests that they want more fresh food options in the
convenience of their local Target store," said Annette Miller, senior vice
president of grocery, Target. "We`re excited to unveil a new, one-stop shopping
experience and believe this significant investment underscores our commitment to
the Detroit community."

layout and other enhanced departments at the following Target locations:
