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.
