For all the moms who have gone to Target with their toddlers with the intention to grab some paper towels and bananas, only to emerge five hours later with ten bags full of who knows what, there is finally hope.
From the toy aisles to the dollar section, there is too much fun stuff to browse at Target. But when you’re on a mission and a tight schedule, the idea of making a quick stop can seem near impossible with so many temptations for kids (and let’s face it, moms too). That’s why the best store on Earth has introduced a new way to shop. Read on to find out more about how you might actually manage to make a Target run that doesn’t turn into a shopping spree (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
Target, every moms’ home away from home, has just unveiled it’s new store redesign, which will begin rolling out in select stores before expanding across the country. The design upgrades include a “speed entrance,” which will lead shoppers directly to the grocery section, featuring a bigger selection of grab-and-go items. The entrance will also be close to the beer and wine section (score!), self-check out lanes, and online order pick-up. There will even be a ten minute parking section near the special entrance for a speedier getaway, where you can have your online order hand-delivered to your car. Order, pick-up, and go, all without waking the baby in the car—what could be better?
The more enticing, “inspiration entrance” will still be there, for those thrilling days when you can spend your me-time browsing to your heart’s content. This entrance will lead right into the heart of the fun: fashion, accessories and seasonal items. The first reimagined store will open in Houston in October, with a total of 500 stores receiving a redesign in the next two years.
