Small-front Targets are popping up in urban areas, dense suburban neighborhoods and near college campuses where typical, traditional-sized stores may not fit. These particular stores cater to the needs of locals. The company plans to open 130 of these stores by the end of 2019
According to the retail chain, the Brooklyn Kings Highway store will employ about 100 people.
In April, Target also announced it was opening three new stores in New York City starting in 2019.
The retailer says it’s bringing the small-format stores to the Upper East Side, Astoria in Queens, and to Staten Island.
