Target to Open 2 Stores in San Diego County

South Park and Del Sur Town Center stores are among those opening nationally

Retailer Target Corp. has scheduled October openings for two San Diego stores that will be among 15 locations under various formats debuting nationwide during 2015.

Officials said a general-merchandise Target store will open at 17170 Camino Del Sur, serving the residential community of Del Sur in north-central San Diego.

That store is expected to open during the same month as a previously announced South Park store, carrying the company’s new small format known as TargetExpress. The store at 3030 Grape St. is among eight set to open nationally, with a footprint averaging around 20,000 square feet and geared to urban settings.

Target in late 2014 made a $10 million purchase of approximately 10 acres near the intersection of Camino Del Sur and Paseo Del Sur, for a store that will anchor a retail center known as Del Sur Town Center, being developed by Shea Properties of Aliso Viejo.

Target officials said six new U.S. general-merchandise locations – also planned in Texas, Hawaii, Illinois and Massachusetts – will test new layouts and merchandise assortments featuring local vendors and “lifestyle setting” displays of home products.

Minneapolis-based Target Corp. currently operates 15 stores in San Diego County.
