Target to Open Small-Format Store in Chicago



MINNEAPOLIS–Target will open its first smaller-format store in Chicago next year.

The store will be sited in Sullivan Center, the restored Carson Pirie Scott building, at the corner of South State Street and Madison Street East. The retailer said this store and its other smaller-format locations to be opened throughout the nation will be named CityTarget. The store will include food, apartment merchandise, fashions and designer collections.

The Chicago CityTarget measures 124,000 square feet, of which 89,000 square feet is selling space. Target first revealed that it would open smaller-format stores in urban areas last September. According to Amy Reilly, spokeswoman for the retailer, these stores will range between 60,000 and 80,000 square feet, depending on their intended locations within these areas.

Reilly said Target is definitely planning to open CityTargets in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles in 2012, as well as Chicago. The company is considering other sites for possible openings next year, she added.
