Target celebrated the grand re-opening of the newly-completed remodeled Nicollet store in downtown Minneapolis on August 23.
The $10 million remodel, which was officially announced by Target Chairman & CEO Brian Cornell at the mpls downtown council’s annual meeting on February 9, highlights Target’s commitment to its retail footprint both in stores and digitally across the country. The downtown location is a model for how hundreds of stores will be remodeled over the next few years.
Cornell, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and others were part of a celebration that took place at Target Commons before offering tours of the Nicollet store’s new look. Included in the celebration were up-close looks at new product lines and how the store is re-envisioning Target’s brick-and-mortar footprint.
The Nicollet store itself features new product lines, an updated digital and technology section, re-imagined food and produce areas, re-designed product presentations, new aesthetics like Minneapolis-centric murals, signage and concrete flooring, a new Starbucks coffee shop and a new liquor store.
There is a “Made in MN” area on the second floor, and several new clothing lines like Goodfellow & Co. and Cat & Jack were unveiled.
