BY Antoinette Alexander

MINNEAPOLS — Target has announced plans for its sixth TargetExpress store, opening in the South Park area of San Diego in July 2015.

The store will be located at the northeast Corner of Grape Street and Fern Street. At approximately 19,000 sq. ft., this store will be about 14% of the size of a typical general merchandise Target store (135,000 sq, ft.).

Like other TargetExpress locations, the South Park store will offer an edited assortment that is locally relevant. For example, this store could include such TargetExpress features as grab-and-go food options, a full beauty department and a pharmacy. The specific offering at the South Park TargetExpress will be determined as construction gets underway, the company stated.

Target currently operates one TargetExpress store in Minneapolis, and the San Diego location is the fifth store to be announced for a 2015 opening.  Three of these stores will be located in the San Francisco Bay Area and one in the Highland Park area of St. Paul, Minn.
