Target has opened its new Upper East Side store at 1201 Third Avenue, between 70th and Third Avenue.
The 23,000 s/f shop is the retailer’s sixth small-format to open in Manhattan.
Nationwide, Target is reaching new guests by opening small-format stores in urban areas and dense suburban neighborhoods and near college campuses. These stores offer an easy and convenient shopping experience in communities where a traditional-sized Target might not fit.
The Upper East Side store offers an assortment of apparel and essentials, health, personal care and beauty products, home décor, grab-and-go groceries and fresh produce.
Services include Order Pickup – which allows guests to order items online and pick up in store within an hour.
The Upper East Side store employs approximately 80 team members.
The store is located at the base of TF Cornerstone’s residential rental building. The luxury apartment complex, called The Fairfax, once housed FBI headquarters.
Richard Skulnik of Ripco represented Target in the lease for the space and Andy Kahn and Christian Stanton of Cushman & Wakefield represented TF Cornerstone.
Meanwhile, Target Corporation and Tru Kids BrandsTM, parent of the Toys“R”Us brand, announced that Target will support the new online and in-store Toys“R”Us shopping experiences in the US.
Target.com will also power online sales in new Toys“R”Us experiential retail stores that will launch this fall in Houston, Texas and Paramus, New Jersey.
The stores are designed to showcase new products and create memorable experiences for kids. Sales associates will help shoppes make online orderts that will be fulfilled through Target.com.
