NEW YORK — Target opened a store in New York City’s Time Square area on Sunday.
“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 our community in the heart of New York City,” said Dan Rivera, Store Director of the new Times Square store. “We offer fresh groceries and essentials for a mid-week grocery run, a convenient CVS pharmacy location, easy grab-and-go food and beverage options for busy city dwellers, tourists, and much more. Guests can also shop on their own terms with our easy, contactless and industry-leading Grocery Pickup services – ready within a couple of hours, with no designated pickup time or membership required for the easiest shopping experience in retail.”
The new outlet, which measures about 33,000 square feet in size, is one of approximately 30 small to mid-sized stores that Target plans to open this year. The retailer has said that it also plans to remodel about 200 stores across the country.
Target opened its first New York City store in 1997, and the company said the Times Square store is its 92nd in the greater New York City area. Those stores collectively employ about 20,923 people, according to the company.
