Target announced last month that it was scheduled to open its smallest store ever near the University of Minnesota campus. At 20,000 SF, TargetExpress will carry about 20% of the merchandise a typical Target store offers. Products will include dry groceries, meat, deli, bakery and frozen items, as well as a large selection of grab-and-go foods. Other products to be sold include pharmacy items, school supplies, home décor and electronics.
"We'll carefully evaluate the new store format to determine plans for future growth," said a company representative earlier in the year when plans were originally announced.
