Target to open TargetExpress stores in San Francisco, Berkeley
MINNEAPOLIS — Target has announced plans to open, in March 2015, two new TargetExpress stores in San Francisco’s Financial District and Berkeley, Calif.
Target’s first TargetExpress store opened this year in Minneapolis, and the San Francisco-area stores will mark the first time Target is expanding this format outside the Minneapolis area.
The San Francisco store will be approximately 18,000 sq. ft. and located next to the Montgomery BART station, in the heart of the financial district. The Berkeley store will be approximately 12,000 sq. ft. and located next to the Downtown Berkeley BART station, near the main entrance to the University of California, Berkeley.
“From listening to our guests at the two San Francisco CityTarget stores, we know the smaller format of TargetExpress will fit right into the busy San Francisco Bay Area lifestyle and enable us to cater to each community’s needs,” said Kamau Witherspoon, senior director store operations, Target.
Both TargetExpress locations will be customized to fit the individual needs of the surrounding neighborhoods. For example, the Bush Street store will feature a large grab-and-go area with sandwiches, salads, breakfast items like yogurt and midday snacks for busy commuters on the go. The store also will include a Starbucks and select items from Target's Made to Matter collection, which features products from such San Francisco Bay Area companies as Annies, Yes To and Method.
The Berkeley store will offer a large selection of grocery items — including produce, dairy, frozen, snacks and beverages — to serve the students, commuters and residents of Berkeley. Additionally, both new TargetExpress stores will be stocked with essentials in home, beauty and electronics, including a robust assortment of Target’s owned brands. The stores will also include Target’s pick-up-in-store service and a pharmacy.
Target opened the first TargetExpress in Minneapolis in July, and has announced plans to open one in the Highland Park area of St. Paul, Minn., in 2015. A third San Francisco Bay Area TargetExpress will also open in 2015, with a location to be announced in the coming months, the company stated.
