US retailer Target Corp. is to remodel 90 stores in a bid to expand its fresh food offering.
The revamp is expected to be completed by June, the firm said today (24 April). The company did not disclose financial details of the investment.
Upon completion, the stores will offer “a full selection of affordable and quality fresh foods” to consumers across the US, it said.
The stores will be the second of three cycles of remodels for Target this year, the retailer said. Stores scheduled for the June remodel includes markets from Des Moines in Iowa to El Paso in Texas.
Target said around 1,000 stores offer an expanded food layout, with around 10,000 square feet dedicated to fresh food. By the end of the year, around 1,100 Target stores will offer the expanded fresh food layout.
“We are excited to incorporate our enhanced food assortment into additional stores in June,” said Annette Miller, senior VP of grocery at Target. “By remodeling these stores, we bring an expanded offering of fresh food and added convenience to our guests in these communities.”
