Target’s strategy of opening 23 new stores has led it to adapt to the needs of the community, opening small format branches and a new large store in Texas
Over the past few months, many retail companies have closed their stores. That doesn’t apply to Target. Unlike its competitors, the red circle retailer opened 23 new stores in the United States this 2023.

According to the company, its design and placement strategy plus ease, inspiration, and relevance helps build stores that work for the benefit of the community. According to Target, this formula has worked in a variety of neighborhoods and building footprints in 2022, from suburban centers to urban centers, from Wyoming to Florida.

In a difficult time for many retailers, where big companies like Walmart have closed warehouses or specialty stores like Bed Bath & Beyond are considering bankruptcy, Target tailors its stores to the needs of each community. For example, in downtown Pittsburgh, in an urban location, it offers a wide variety of groceries within a 10,000-square-foot space.

This adaptation is also reflected in the design of its stores, such as the electronic tail movement of the chain’s mascot, Bullseye, in its Times Square store in New York City or the corrugated steel cladding in the small store. open in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles. Target has reinvented the design of its stores, with new elements to better serve customers and employees, and advance the chain’s sustainability goals.

In November, Target delivered a blow to the competition with the opening of its new 150,000-square-foot store in Katy, Texas. With a footprint 20% larger than the chain’s current average, the site features a back-room fulfillment area that is five times larger than similarly sized stores, providing more space to deliver online orders. through the retailer’s services on the same day.

The new concept would be Target’s main focus for years to come, even as it continues to open stores of all sizes.
