Express-Format Target Now Open on Hillsborough Street

I had the chance to attend a preview of the new express-format Target that is now open on Hillsborough Street last week and was quite impressed with the retail offerings, especially the grocery and produce items. Check out the pictures and my quick thoughts below!

While you enter on the ground level, you immediately take stairs or the elevator to the second-level shopping area.

The store was decked out in NC State gear and notable items (Howling Cow Ice Cream served at the event, although it won’t be a regularly-stocked time. You’ll still have to head to a campus c-store for that.

A varied assortment of merchandise – from hosier to office supplies – it’ll be interesting to see how this mix changes once this store has sales data to merchandise against.

What was particularly impressive was the fresh produce and grocery merchandising. I told my other half who joined along with me for the visit that this is the best stocked these shelves will ever be! Hat tip to the beer merchandising folks who have local brew Lonerider front and center in the beer cooler. 👍

What do you think? Have you stopped in and shopped yet? Located at 2512 Hillsborough Street, this store is open:
Monday – Friday: 7:00 am – 10:00 pm
Saturday – Sunday: 8:00 am – 10:00 pm

Maybe they’ll adopt an online shopping and curbside pick-up service, that would ensure a weekly visit from yours truly!
