Target has expanded its New York City footprint once again. A new store opened on the Upper East Side this week a year after the company announced the new Manhattan location. Located at 150 East 86th Street, the 55,000-square-foot store is Target’s 12th store in the borough and its 11th “small-format” location, which offers convenient on-the-go options and pick-up service.

One Court Square, the former Citigroup Building, was long the tallest tower in Queens until it was overtaken by the residential Skyline Tower. In addition to its prominence in the skyline, the building is also known for its failed deal with Amazon. The retailer had planned to lease one million square feet of space at the tower as part of its former HQ2 plan for Long Island City. But, as the Post first reported, One Court Square has inked a deal with another major retailer–Target. The store will take 31,000 square feet at the tower, with no exact opening date set.

Manhattan will get two new Target stores, adding to the retail giant’s growing New York City footprint. As first reported by PincusCo, the company has signed a 20-year lease for a store at Vornado Realty Trust’s 150 East 86th Street on the Upper East Side and a 15-year lease for space at 795 Columbus Avenue on the Upper West Side, overseen by the Chetrit Group. The two new locations, totaling nearly 80,000 square feet, will be small-format stores, which offer easy pick-up service and grab-and-go products.

Getting groceries is no easy task in the current climate, from waiting in lines to scavenging for toilet paper. But a couple of new Twitter accounts are hoping to make it a bit less stressful, at least for those New Yorkers still heading to Trader Joe’s. Trader Joes Line Alert was started by a Brooklyn Heights resident to let people know how long the line currently is at the Court Street store. Likewise, EV TJs and Target Line will let you know how long the lines are at both the Trader Joe’s and Target on 14th Street and Avenue A. And then there’s Trader Joes Line Murray Hill.

A planned expansion by Target into several Queens neighborhoods has run afoul of politicians and community groups. The chain store hopes to open new stores in Astoria and Elmhurst by 2022, but activists in the borough have been fighting to stop the new additions, objecting to the fact that they’ll replace mom-and-pop stores and concerned about the effects of gentrification in their neighborhoods. Another concern is that Target’s non-union workforce will replace union jobs, The City reports.
