New York City is getting its 28th Target store, the retail giant announced on Monday. The company will open a “small-format” store near Columbus Circle on the Upper West Side in 2019. This new Target is part of the company’s plan to open 130 small-format stores by the end of next year in urban and highly-populated suburban areas, as well as near college campuses.
“Located in a premier shopping hub of Manhattan, this store will serve Midtown West and Upper West Side guests, as well as meet the on-the-go needs of Central Park visitors and Columbus Circle shoppers,” Mark Schindele, the senior vice president of Properties for Target, said in a statement.
Located at 61st Street and Broadway, the new store will measure about 34,000 square feet and offer convenient options including grab-and-go food and beverage options, beauty essentials, apparel, and home decor. Another added bonus, the store will offer an easy pickup service, with 95 percent of online orders ready within an hour.
As 6sqft reported in April, Target will open additional small-format stores on the Upper East Side, Astoria, and Staten Island, as well as in Kips Bay. Target has already sprouted across NYC, with stores in Tribeca, Downtown Brooklyn, Herald Square, Harlem, the East Village, Elmhurst, Forest Hills, on the Lower East Side, Flushing, and the Bronx.
