Tiny Target store starts tiny department store trend

August 28, 2017 by  

A tiny Target store recently opened next to the University of Cincinnati. As a new trend in department stores, this Target might attract residents of nearby Southgate to see what the store has to offer.

The store is 17,000 square feet in size. Kristy Warren, manager of the store who formerly managed a full-service Target store in Colerain Township, said people can find housewares, beer and wine, and groceries as well as electronics in the store.

She added that the smaller size does not detract from the store’s offerings and said that these smaller stores are designed to carry items that would be more attractive for those in which the store is located. For example, stores in urban areas will have more hardware while stores near college campuses will have items for dormitories.

These stores will also provide more flexibility so if customers are looking for specific items, she can make a request to headquarters and get those items in stock.

This store is one of 30 such stores that Target is planning to open across the country before the end of the year, spending $7 billion to open these stores.

Flyer printing companies could be used by stores like Target to create flyers with more general information about their events as well as weekly flyers for any specials that might be offered in any given location.
