Target’s New York City takeover shows no signs of slowing. The chain retailer will open a new store in the Bronx on Sunday, becoming the 96th location in the greater New York City area and fourth in the borough. The store, located at 215 East Fordham Road, joins many commercial businesses around Fordham Plaza, just off the Grand Concourse and near Fordham University.
Located on the corner of East Fordham Road and Valentine Avenue, the store measures 21,000 square feet and is considered a “small-format” location. In recent years, Target has opened several of these smaller stores in urban areas and near college campuses.
The new Bronx location will sell the wide assortment of products for which the store is known, from essentials and home goods to groceries and beauty. There will also be a CVS pharmacy.
According to a spokesperson, Target will donate its arts and crafts brand Mondo Llama to the local New York Public Library branch.
“We’re excited to bring the joy of Target to new guests and help them discover a unique shopping experience tailored to the needs of the Bronx community,” Jonathan Baldera, store director of the new Bronx Fordham Road Target store, said.
Baldera added: “Guests can also shop on their own terms with our easy, contactless and industry-leading Order Pickup, and same-day delivery with Shipt services – ready within a couple of hours with no membership required for the easiest shopping experience in retail.”
The store’s grand opening event takes place on Sunday, October 23 at Fordham Plaza from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Expect free gifts, food vouchers, and MetroCard giveaways, along with music and performances.
