Target Bringing Fresh Grocery to Stores in Detroit Area

January 29, 2013

Target will add fresh grocery several Detroit area locations as part of the company’s ongoing effort to remodel stores across the country. Shoppers will be able to buy Target private labels including Archer Farms premium foods, Market Pantry value staples, and Sutton & Dodge premium quality USDA Choice beef.

Remodeled stores will include about 10,000 square feet dedicated to fresh food, including a curated assortment of fresh produce, fresh packaged meat and pre-packaged baked goods, in addition to dry and frozen offerings.

Beyond the grocery aisles, the remodeled stores also will feature other enhancements.

In the beauty aisles, guests will experience a more visual environment, making it easier to browse a mix of everyday essentials and exclusive brands, the retailer said in a news release. The home department will offer easier navigation with wider aisles and lower product displays. The shoe department will be more comfortable with additional seating and mirrors, and the baby department will become easier to shop with broader visibility between baby gear, supplies and apparel.

“We’ve heard from our guests that they want more fresh food options in the convenience of their local Target store,” said Annette Miller, senior vice president of grocery, Target. “We’re excited to unveil a new, one-stop shopping experience and believe this significant investment underscores our commitment to the Detroit community.”

Target also is remodeling locations in several other markets across the country including Cleveland, San Antonio and Las Vegas. The Detroit area layouts will be available beginning March 24.
