Target is now open on the ground floor of the Revel Apartments at 1300 W. Lake St., selling groceries, electronics, apparel and Starbucks coffee. The location also holds a CVS Pharmacy.
The 21,410-square-foot store holds taller shelving in order to stock many of the items found in a typical Target footprint, said Kyle Kohns, the store’s team leader. She said a wide selection of diapers caters to young families in the area. Home goods include a Hearth & Hand brand by HGTV’s Chip and Joanna Gaines, arriving in November.
Customers can ship furniture and other packages to the store for pickup.
A section for local products offers sweatshirts by Sota, marshmallows by North Mallow and popcorn by Maddy & Maize. Wall murals nod to the Uptown location, showcasing cyclists and a record player — the site was formerly home to Cheapo Records, which is now located at 26th & Nicollet.
Twenty-three free parking spaces are available for one hour below the structure.
Uptown is one of 11 small-format Target stores that opened last week in cities including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. The company operates 55 small-format stores today, and aims to operate 130 by the end of 2019 in dense areas and college campuses.
