Need to go to Target, but don’t have an hour to spare?
The big-box store has announced plans to open a mini Target in San Diego’s South Park neighborhood.
TargetExpress will be located at the corner of Fern Street and Grape Street. Gala Foods currently occupies the space but is set to close Nov. 1, a store employee confirmed to NBC 7.
TargetExpress will carry just the essentials, such as grab and go food, beauty products and household supplies. It will also include a pharmacy.
The store will be about 19,000 square feet, about 14 percent of the size of a regular Target store, according to the company.
San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria said Target hasn't submitted plans to the city, and he has requested a meeting with the company. He wants to make sure the store would fit with the character of the neighborhood.
There is currently one TargetExpress in Minneapolis, where Target is headquartered. The company plans to open three in the Bay Area and one in St. Paul, Minnesota.
The San Diego location is set to open next July.
