Target Bringing Fresh Grocery to Stores in Detroit Area
Store remodels represent significant investment in Detroit community
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Target Corp. (NYS: 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."
